There's a difference between someone trying to pull his weight (as the person in the article) or a nuisance that can't be bothered to put in any effort (like the guy in your guild apparently)The main problem happening with friends/family joining the same guild is that guildies are reluctant to comment on their behaviour. Meaning they'll rather "compensate" for a mistake said person made (eg. heal through a stupid overaggro that would normally have killed him/her) instead of letting them die and learn the lesson, generally without even commenting on the mistake. This, obviously, is bad as the poor guy might be trying hard to learn, but can't really because nobody tells him what he's doing wrong.Also, something I've noticed with my sister (and myself when I started out raiding) is that they often place the other, more experienced, guildmembers on a pedestal and totally stress out about messing up, generally with the result of them actually messing up in a really stupid way they wouldn't have if they had relaxed a bit more.All I can say is, "chill". You might be in an Ulduar clearing guild but they're just humans, if you enjoy hardcore raiding then it is the guild for you. If you try your utmost to catch up with the others by learning as much as you can by yourself and asking and taking advice from more experienced members you will earn their respect and with it you'll feel a lot more at home in the guild.
