While I can agree that your guild and people you group with routinely can have a certain say over your spec, as it affects how they perform in a raid or heroic as much as you do, Random Player #34326 should have no right to nose into my talents and then send me a rude tell about how horribly I'm specced when all I'm doing is idling in Dalaran.Random other players have no idea what my spec might be for. Maybe I decided to play around with a new talent tree. Maybe I just respecced and followed advice of a friend. Maybe I'm soloing, not raiding or running heroics. Maybe I'm just having fun doing random stuff in the world. I have had no less than three tells from players I don't even know sassing me about my spec. Players I have never run with, ever. Not regs, not heroics, not raids. All of them were right after I respecced and dove all-points into my new tree to try and figure out what I liked and what I didn't. That's just as much a part of the social contract as "agreeing to help out your guild and respect their opinions." Don't be a nosy nancy. If I've never run with you, or I've pugged with you all of once, your opinion means roughly less than mud to me and you nosing in and being an absolute jerk about how you think I should spec just earns you a nice big spot on my ignore list.
