Contrary opinions are good; they make us question our own conclusions:@RazortoothI completely agree with you. The current loot system should not be exploited, and generally I think this type of unethical behavior is the exception rather than the rule. What I am saying is that to completely prevent this type of behavior a change would have to be made to the system, as there will - unfortunately - always be gamers that take advantage of such loopholes, no matter how noble (or nefarious) their intentions.I wouldn't worry about comment voting; it's just WoW.com's way of allowing gamers that prefer not to comment to express their disagreement, and that's okay (even when they disagree with me).@CambroI get where you're coming from, but probability is the right of each raid member, and the current loot system allows players the right to distribute that probability to any member they wish. I'm not saying it's right, it's certainly not, but it is hardly stealing, meaning it does not compare to hacking into an account, taking a guild bank, and transferring it to another toon or set of toons. That being said, I think there may be some validity to your argument from an opportunity-loss standpoint. You've definitely given me some food for thought.It's funny, Cambro, your comment made me think of the conversation between Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi in Return of the Jedi:Luke: "A certain point of view?"Obi-Wan: "Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.
