I agree with you, Rynthil. Why would a guild induct and retain the membership of an unreliable player in the first place? What would motivate a raid leader (and guild officer) to expel a guild member in such an abrupt, derisive way? Immaturity. Responding comments characterize the exchange as mutual -- but while returning puerility for puerility may encourage obedience, it encourages neither loyalty nor courtesy.Two days ago, one player in a 25-man VoA pickup group decided that DPS was to blame (it wasn't). He singled out three players, asked them if they were DPS, and then insulted them. The raid leader responded with three tells: he wouldn't tolerate that kind of behavior, one of those insulted was a friend and two strangers had already shown themselves to be knowledgeable and polite, and that he was sorry for having to kick the obnoxious player. That's leadership. That's class.Rynthil argues that World of Warcraft is not so important that it justifies treating people badly, and that's correct.
