Good point and similar to what I thought of immediately when I read the letter and article. Discussing technique is important, but First Things First! Start with setting definite standards for how much damage, how much threat, how much healing a player needs to generate, giving some specific examples using specific fights. Make the standards reasonable.Having set standards, then, there's no need to wonder how to approach the subject with players who are clearly using some ineffective techniques (or gear/spec/gems/etc). Don't begin by talking about technique, just present (in the most constructive way you can muster) the difference between their output and the guild or raid group's expectations of them. Next, if they don't care they will leave or be asked kindly to leave. If they do care they will either do their own research and improvement (problem solved!) or ask for advice/suggestions/training (problem solved!).
