Some of this is attitude - people think "Oh god, not that boss again, we always wipe..." and proceed to wipe. If you have alternate bosses you can do (the Keepers in Ulduar, the choice between Fester/RF and Dreamwalker in ICC, etc) then tell the raid "OK, this week instead of the boss we've been wiping on a lot, we're going to learn and kill Other Boss." That way everyone has something new to look forward to and progress or a kill will remind them that they're OK. An Ulduar example... we were stuck on Thorim. Splitting the raid was just not working for us.... so one night I took us to Freya. We cleared the room and, on try #6, killed her. It was a good feeling and reminded the raid we could do this. ON an end boss like LK, spend some time going over the stuff that needs to happen and isn't and then set a wipe limit so that people know they're not stuck there for three 3 hour nights wiping 20 times. Either set a number of hours or set a number of wipes and, if you haven't got him, let people go do other stuff. People tend not to want to login when they're being forced to do something they feel is futile and not fun. Of course, if you hit your limit but you're all of a sudden making progress you can keep going... but if you're not, don't make people feel like dicks if they don't want to continue to bang their heads against that wall.
