I disagree--I think both parties were wrong here.1.) The raider should have been responsible for knowing the strategies before the fight, making sure that he had everything required to raid (in this case, a working Ventrilo client), and stepping out so they could find a replacement if he couldn't meet those criteria. He also screwed up by giving the RL a lecture: while he may have once been a raid leader (even in the same guild), he's just another raider now, and he should not be telling the RL what do do unless the RL asks for help or the GM tells him to instruct the RL. If he thinks the RL is not doing a good job, that's something that should be brought to the attention of the GM.2.) The raid leader should have been paying attention to raid chat and Vent so that he could see there was a problem with one of the raid members, attempted to help the raider resolve his problem, and then asked the raider to step out if the problem couldn't be resolved. It was also incredibly immature to bring a personal disagreement into guild chat, especially repeating whispers. The raider's lack of preparation and disrespect should have been addressed, at most, in a group of other officers, not with the general guild population.I don't think either of them is mature enough to resolve this issue on their own. The GM or a senior officer should speak to both of them (separately), explain why how they acted was not acceptable, and then work to both overcome this drama and avoid a similar problem in the future.
