Weird. The only votes to kick I've seen in a long time have been for AFK/DC people.

Same here. I dunno if it's just my battlegroup, but I've seen a marked decrease in these kinds of shenanigans in the past few months. I can't remember the last time I saw someone get vote kicked who wasn't afk or dc'd.

Me too. Although after a few bad experiences I refused to use the LFD tool with fewer than three guildies - so far superior numbers have cut down on the misbehavior enormously, although the incidence of emblem zombies seems to have risen. Still, I'd rather have silence than snark.

Same for me, normally the 'elite' just keep on harassing the 'noob' until he/she leaves.

People are very quick to try to kick the dc'd person tho, we were doing a lot of random normals on the way thru the 70s, 4 of us in the guild picking up 1 pug, and i typed in party chat that the chicken had dcd and would be back shortly before the game told us he had dcd cos ofc i had been told over tsthe second the game announced the dc the pug tried to kick them, no questions asked nothing, ofc none of us agreed and i actually said to the guy, hey hes only been dcd a few seconds give him chance to come back online.he wasnt amused at being asked to be patient, so i told him look at the guild tags mate, if you dont like it you know where the door isbut to be totally honest, i would give a few to anyone that dcd, these things happen even to the best of us at times, however patience is one thing that a lot of wow players lack sadly.

@PsycI think the reason people are so quick to vkick when a player dc's is because dc'ing seems to be the popular way to drop group without getting the debuff. Granted I don't know if it actually works but I've seen lots of discussion about it in Trade chats, as well as seen tanks do this immediately after getting HoR as a random. Apparently dying and releasing before re-entering the instance and dropping group before the LFD timer expires are other popular methods.
