Problem: PUG groups have ridiculous requirements.Solution: Don't join PUG groups.

I have to agree. On my server there are always enough people to PuG a run of your own, you don't need to put up with someone's BS.Those kinds of requirements are usually a red flag to me, for many of the reasons listed above: potential loot ninja, want to be carried through an instance or achievement, what have you. I have seen the "LFG for For The Alliance! 75+ only" where the raid leader doesn't meet his own standards; the best one so far was a level 66!

Amen. I've seen this on my server and had guild members complain in chat they were not considered for even a heroic 5-man because they didn't have something the leader wanted. One of my best hunters is leveling a warrior because she grew tired of the unrealistic expectations for heroic 5-man PuGs. I remind them that we can do things as a guild, maybe not rightnow when they want to go, but in the next couple of days. But really, this isn't something new. I remember BC LFG posts that were, "Must know fights" or "Must have 2k dps". Maybe because there were more endgame instances to do in BC, it wasn't as prevalent as it is now, but it was there. I can't speak to Classic as I was just a lowbie when BC came out so I never paid attention to LFG Classic endgame. I'm willing to bet, though, some PuGs had, "Must have own Ony Scale Cloak".
