Blizzard already knows what your Armor restrictions are, your Weapon restrictions, what you already have in your bags/bank (AKA, Mounts and shit like that). So, something they COULD do is to have an Auto-Need roll on Mounts (and shit like that) that you don't have. They COULD have it to where, if an item drops you aren't really suppose to use (Like, Pallys and Mail, Leather or Cloth) have that come up as an Automatic "Offspec" roll. Anyone that can use that as the "Mainspec" have the abilities like it was a normal piece of loot. They can Need, Greed, or pass on it. The way that could work would be like a Rock, Paper, Scissors way. Main Need beats Off Need. Off Need beats Main Greed. An Off Greed wouldn't be needed. Clothies won't be able to roll on another other then cloth. Leather wears can't roll on Mail and Plate. Mail wears can't roll on plate. So all those would be an Auto-Pass. And that all applies to Weapons, too. Obviously, can't have two Unique items, and it's already in place to Auto-Pass on those. But it could be said that you can't have another piece of the same item you're wearing or have in the bank. They COULD make the Auto-DE work in a way where a Box (similar to Ready Check) would pop up when an Item drops. Yes would cause it to be DEed and No would let you roll on it to use. It has to be an Unanimous Vote for it to work, or it gets rolled on. All the other "rules" above would apply. And if somehow someone does Ninja it, Blizzard COULD add a "Report Ninja" button or slash command. It would have to be cleared with all other party members AND a GM. Once fully cleared, the person would have a Notice appear on the LFG panel saying something like "Known Ninja" or "Ninja Beware". Again, Blizzard COULD do that. But we all know, they are NOT smart enough to implement something such as that, which may already get rid of a lot of problems that could have popped-up with the new LFG system. We all know Blizzard they just aren't smart enough to do something GOOD. As we all have seen, they fuck up everything. So I don't expect to see all that in-game. And if by some chance Blizzard gets a brief burst of "Smartness", and actually do put it in game, you can bet they'd fuck it up.

Actually, what they do now is definitely smart. They place the burden of avoiding ninjas on players, and avoid having their entire GM staff tied up in he said/she said fights. Maybe you don't like it because it doesn't potentially resolve every problem before it happens, but it's definitely smart of them to do so.
