Look as a member of a somewhat progression style guild (9/12 hard modes ICC 25), I can tell you this kind of behavior would not be accepted in a serious raiding guild. The raid leader would have bounced them out of his/her raid, and the guild leader would have done the same out of the guild. On the flip side serious raider don't always equal serious jerks. Just as casual raiders don’t equal noobs. The thing is we have different play styles and need to learn to respect those play styles.

All hardcore raiders are not jerks, many of us are very helpful to the communities we play in. How many of you use Elitist Jerks website? This is definitely a group of hardcore gamers, and they spend their time informing the community step by step on how to better play classes and specs. Please don’t let a few bad apple hardcore raiders make bad impression for all of us, and we don’t take everyone with 6k+ GS to be people who are just noobs.

Agreed. The words 'elitist jerk' certainly have their own meaning, but by capitalizing it it seemed like a poke at the EJ guild/website and hardcore raiders in general. Bad form sir, bad form.

The name of the Elitist Jerks site was chosen deliberately. I decline to change the label I apply to obnoxious people with elitist attitudes in deference to them. They chose the name. They can live with the resulting confusion and opprobrium or they can change the name of their site.
