Our guild has been having exactly this problem as well, although we seem to be finally coming out of a long dark patch now that many folks seem to be back from vacation, etc... I don't think other guilds are so much poaching though as that would suggest that they're out there actively soliciting our members. It seems to be the other way around where our members are actively looking for more progressed guilds. There's really only so much you can do though. If someone wants to leave, it's their $15. We let people know that if they want to leave, they're not getting an invite back if it doesn't work out. That seems to ensure that anyone who wants to leave is really serious about it and not just testing the waters.

And I think players are moving to more progressed guilds because they think that they won't see the next tier of raids with their current guild before Wrath. Think about it... if you're early to mid SSC or on Gruul/Mag... you might well not see BT before Wrath ships. And for all of the "Oh noes, we can't raid now that people are leaving" from the raiders now... when Wrath ships all of those people will level up to 80 so that they can run raids in Wrath. A few people might go back to BT to see it months post-Wrath... but it will be like Naxx - one of those places that most people who didn't see it at 70 will never see. So If you WANT to see it and your current guild isn't likely to before Wrath... you leave.
