I have to agree with Nick S. I've only ever been reported afk twice, in my entire time of playing WoW. The first time it happened, I was just a new player and was attempting to find my way to get a specific quest in AV; it was only my third AV. And, someone mistook me for afking, I suppose, and reported me. The second time, my computer froze on me, while resing. I was frozen for less than a minute, I believe. But, it was long enough for someone to assume I was afk and most likely get others to report me, as well. I unfroze before the debuff wore off and was able to resume the BG. But, man, that really annoyed the crap out of me. My computer doesn't freeze like that often, so it wasn't something I could've anticipated. When someone is truly afk, it's obvious. And, it's only fair that they should be reported. But, to report someone after less than a minute of standing still, when it's easy to see that 20 seconds or less of that was probably res time? That's abuse of power.But, like so many other posters have pointed out, the anonymity of the internet leads to the average person behaving in a less than desirable way. It's so unfortunate, but true.
