@TimYours is the primary situation that I was expressing that players really need to avoid.First, let me say that when I am speaking in terms of player quality, the style of guild that you are in is going to be a large determinant to that. If you are in a guild whose primary focus is pushing progression and downing content years before anyone else, then the bar for a poor player is going to be placed quite high. If you are in a guild, like the one I was, where the goal is to just down bosses and have fun as you can without a huge concern towards being the first, then how 'skilled' players have to be a much lower. There is a place for everyone in the raiding scene, really there is, but that place isn't always going to be in a specific guild. Only a guild can decided what level of play they wish to persue. That being said, Tim's issue is exactly what can occur when you don't follow this rule. It is entirely possible that the guild was already thinking of removing Tim (although it could also just be that they're dicks and picked a quick target for their friend) but felt that they didn't have a suitable replacement in line. So...they did nothing. And now that they do have a replacement, suddenly everything feels like a problem. It's completely unfair to Tim to treat him in such a manner, and why the situation should never take place. I know that gkicking people doesn't seem like a nice thing to do at time, but it is often far nicer than the alternatives. This is one of those alternatives...and it sucks.
