"If you're doing it to lighten the situation with an over-the-top reaction or for humorous effect, that's one thing. "To be honest, it was more of this than genuine anger. I mean, I was irritated with it, definitely, but the guy and I were pretty close as we had known each other for a long time through the game and we often picked on each other. Perhaps given the context and the situation, it wasn't a good idea to say it because it would be taken as me being a jerk, but eh, I dunno.

First off, if you did resort to language in the heat of the moment, then you were wrong. Its very easy in the heat of the moment to get caught up in your emotions, but you should have chosen your words slightly better. Then again, if your relationship with him is anything like one of my friends (I call her a loot whore anytime something drops she could use - shes a pally, so theres alot of drops). We laugh, and she knows I'm joking 90% of the time until she really does ninja something from someone (RSOC).Second off, you had every right to call him out in vent. You have to show the others in the run/guild that you (the officers) wont put with BS. Its one thing to joke and play around on some trash thats super easy, but its another to do that on a boss, especially after being warned once. You guys did the right thing by no loot and calling him out.As for those others that died on the fight (b/c its a dps race) pin the blame on him. If you had slow dps, and he wasnt pulling his weight, then its obvious what happened.The short and sweet version: apologize for the name calling, but remind him what he did was wrong in the first place. It broke the rules.
