Yeah, the performance issues don't even come in to play. It would take a lot for me to kick someone for incompetency. If someone is unpleasant, especially towards the women in the group? That will guarantee a short hook.

"If someone is unpleasant, especially towards the women in the group?""especially towards the women in the group"Mmmm noble sexism, the best KIND of sexism.

I agree with that. I have only kicked people for being incompetent when it has caused or could cause a wipe. So a DPS that is pulling instead of the tank, is asking to get kicked in my groups. One of the worst guys I've had did this because he got "bored" and later justified it by talking about how he had three 70s.However, if someone is being rude, unpleasant, and generally ruining the fun of the run, then that's a pretty good reason to kick them by itself. It's not pretty, and I've never had to do this to someone good, but there's no reason to waste your time with someone like that if they won't stop.

I probably should have replied to my own comment with an "in before...". Women get a lot of crap in-game that men would never get. The obnoxiousness towards women is sexist and offensive, not just rude, like what the author describes. I don't think it's that hard to make the jump in what I said. But anyway, you are right. Opening doors and saying "you shouldn't talk to a woman like that" is ingrained.

"If someone is unpleasant, especially towards the women in the group? "As a female player, this made me smile. Don't worry, not everyone thinks that "the good kind of sexism" is a bad thing. Chivalry rocks, and is often sexy.

I respect you for this comment because its nice that you recognize that unwanted grief and attention is what women get just because they are female. Its not the omg she's a girl thing so she has to be treated differently.. its not like that.. its the respect that is deserved as a person.
