Sorry, I'm coming down on the other side of the fence on this one. I totally agree with the 'it's a game, not a job' angle; if you're not having fun, you need to reevaluate your playstyle or your decision to play at all. HOWEVER, raiding is a team sport; there are 9 (or 24) other people that you made a commitment to when you signed up to raid, and even more so for a raid leader. What would people say if you were on a basketball team and you got fed up with some people's loose talk and just walked off the court, mid-game? What if your team captain did it? That kind of behavior doesn't fly in real life, either.I think even ERL recognizes what he did was wrong; why do you defend it? Even he understands that he was contributing to the drama, not avoiding it. You seem to imply that 'no-fault gquit' includes any time, anywhere, under any circumstances; personally, that sounds pretty selfish to me.I apologize if I sound overly harsh; one of my biggest pet peeves is the different standard of behavior that we seem to have behind the veil of anonymity provided by the internet...
