Araydan has hit the nail on the head: its all about how the criticism is delivered. I was in a guild where the raid leader would yell, and scream, and pitch a fit when someone messed up (like asking me to OT in DPS gear and then get pissed when I couldn't take a hit) and people dropped like flies. Pretty soon, the guild dissolved and reformed. The new guild leader was unrelenting and brutal when it came to calling people out after a wipe, but he did it in a way that made people want to come back after every wipe and keep trying until our time was up. He never screamed, or yelled, or cussed us out. He calmly explained our mistake, gave us the chance to improve on it, and if we were still messing up, then we were out and a sub was brought in.
