"To me it would seem you answered your own question. Why treat someone badly just because you can? It is always best IMO to try and remember that there are real people behind each toon, even if it they are 'just' a PUG."And you never know when some pugged member of the group could end up being your newest guildmate. Just because someone is in another guild doesn't mean they may not be looking for bigger and better things, and guilds fall apart or split all of the time.For example, the 10-man guild I was in broke up over the weekend. We had Naxx on farm, downed Sarth +1D and were working on Malygos when 3.1 dropped; suddenly, several of our raiders were a lot less reliable (but somehow finding time to do 25-man PuGs) and one of our core healers decided she was going to "boycott" raiding for a MONTH because... well, we're not exactly sure why because she didn't want to "hurt anyone's feelings" by talking about it.We were falling behind in progression, which would make it harder to recruit -- why go with a 10-man guild that's still working on EoE when there are 25-mans working on Ulduar? -- so we called it quits. As a result, there are about a dozen good 10-man geared raiders loose on my server, and a couple of promising candidates who deserve a shot in a guild that will work with them.I got into a 25-man Naxx PuG over the weekend long enough to down a quarter. This was a true PuG -- no more than 3 or 4 members were from the same guild -- but my goal is to show that I know the basics of the fights (if not the specific differences between the 10- and 25-man versions) and can pull my weight; I was in the top 5 for DPS on most of the fights in 10-man gear, and always in the top 10. At the same time, I'm also looking at groups and guilds to see who would be a good fit for my playing time.
