The problem isn't that people abuse it. IT's that it's easier to exclude someone because of a generally accepted number system than it is to crunch down all those numbers or have a macro handy to do it for you. At least with achievements people quickly realize this person looking for people is an idiot, but with a universally understood and accepted ranking system, it's harder to ignore that someone who has a 3k gearscore isn't as good as a 5k gearscore person (though it's not always, and sometimes rarely, the case). If we went back to inspecting people and seeing their gear and spec choices when inviting them to a raid, things would be a lot less discriminatory I think.But I'm glad people are starting to see it's useless. I deleted it the other day even though I love the gear comparison for master looters as a raid leader...made seeing if something's an upgrade faster without asking. But I was tired of continually seeing what people's gearscore was to compare to myself when I was sometimes better than someone 1k or more my own score on my toons. It's stressful and ruins the gearing game for me, since I always do things my own way.
