What is the most diabolical way to deal with a mean pug? I don't mean a noob. I mean someone who is mean-spirited, outrightly causing a problem, refusing to listen...a funsucker, if you will. Kicking some of the rotten pugs I've been grouped with seems like it's being way too nice to them.

I only did this once- I was running a guildy thru a normal LK dungeon and I was prompted to "go go go" at the beginning. I rolled my eyes and kept going. after the 2nd or 3rd trash pull i get "pull or I will." So I said "like this?" and rounded up about 5-6 mobs as I hit my bubble and proceeded to run out of the dungeon. I'm not proud of it. I felt bad for the other people and apologized to my guildy who is my RL friend. I put up with enough BS in heroics I definitely wasn't going to put up with it for some spoiled teen in a normal dungeon :)

I had a pug of Halls of Stone once where a hunter was needlessly mocking every other player, hurrying us and generally being an ass. The healer sent me a whisper, asking me to rez him after we pulled the last boss. I didn't understand, until we pulled and both the tank (paladin) and the healer (also paladin) cast the bubble that kills the caster on both myself and the other non-jerk DPS. The hunter was the only target available for the duration of the bubbles, and died horribly. He screamed and cried and /ragequit, and we finished up the instance.Players who have the will, the nerve and the heart to put jerks in their place: we salute you.

My personal favorite (as a hunter) is constantly Misdirecting. Works great in guild groups when the tank and healer are guildies and we pug an asshole. MD to asshole, healer lets him die, tank rounds them up, proceed like normal. As a healer, I just don't heal or rez them. Ever.

The simplest thing to do is what healers do: Don't heal him.Other things will require some coordination. A tank can simply not taunt, but it's hard to know when not to taunt (because the loose mob may be heading towards a healer or other dps); this can easily be remedied with a hunter misdirecting or a rogue doing tricks of the trade to the offending douche canoe.Usually after 5 or 6 deaths, the person will be like "why am I not getting healed" or "why are all the mobs aggro'ing me" and at this point, he will either shape up and be a good soldier, or he will become a belligerent navel gazing mouth breather and likely drop group.
