I think the key is to treat everyone equally when it comes to official guild matters. It's one thing to pass on concerns from the people you talk to the most, it's another thing to get your friends raid spots. It seems to be a common issue in larger guilds that there are those couple of people who don't have to follow the rules because they're friends with the GM/one of the officers. This can be a guild killer, especially if the person in question abuses that. I was in a guild that nearly split over this issue - one of the GMs buddies was just a real jerk (and not a very good player), but the GM insisted the raid leaders invite him. Most of the officers and the core raiders hated the guy, and if he hadn't stopped playing, it's not hard to imagine that there would have been a guild split over it. It's an extreme case, but the important thing is to remember that if your guild has rules, friends of officers (or officers, for that matter) can't be excluded from them. You can be their friends without showing favoritism.
