It sounds like perhaps a lack of preparation/communication before the fights. If your raid warning was the first he'd been told to kite the guy, then you didn't prepare him sufficiently. Our raid leaders do an excellent job of reviewing each boss fight before we start and giving people a chance to say if they don't understand something. We're a T5/T6 guild, but we STILL ask people if they know the Kara fights when we're doing gear/badge runs, since everybody is new at some point. You cannot fairly expect someone to properly execute a boss fight based on in-the-moment instructions. It's the duty of the raid leaders to review the strat at the start and ask everyone if they get it. If everyone says yes and THEN fucks up, then you have an issue to deal with, but even then, there are legit reasons for something going pear-shaped. The best raid leaders/officers are the ones with patience who remember when they had no idea what was going on, and allow the guild members to make mistakes and learn from them. The only time you should boot someone is when they say they understand something and they really don't, or when they're simply not paying attention.
