The real problem here is a guild that gets mad at its members for leaving when they can't provide what the player is looking for. Leaving a guild doesn't mean you cease to be friends with those who stay.The whole notion speaks of how immature many guild structures are, worrying like a jealous high school boyfriend about what its members are doing and then getting angry at them when they go a seek out a more fulfilling relationship.I've been part of running a 3 night/3 hour a night raid guild that cleared halfway through BT pre 3.0 (3 yrs old on New Years Eve). We've had several members leave over the course of the guild to seek out more dedicated raiding schedules. We've never held it against them and as a consequence of that, have seen many of them rejoin over time. I don't want people staying in my guild because they are worried I'll get mad if they leave, I want them staying because they enjoy the atmosphere of the guild. Anything else is a recipe for drama.
