Ah, the days of global LFG; when upon logging into the game you would instantly be bombarded with a wall of Chuck Norris jokes and flame wars. It was like The Barrens chat and Trade chat had a horrible, horrible love child.

Unless you always logged into it in which case you might be a moderator occasionally in which case you could kick the annoying people out. Aw, those were some nice days.

I never had a problem with the old LFG channel on my server, BWL. In fact, it was nice: I would log into my main, do some "house keeping" (auctions, etc) and then log onto my farming alt, and go herbing/mining. About every 2 minutes or so, I would hit a macro saying "tank LF (insert raid here) - geared and have experience - looking for some offspec gear"Sure, there were the flamers and the jokers, but with a couple of clicks, they were ignored and the channel was largely used for what it was designed for: finding people for your groups.

Honestly, I rather miss global LFG. It was a mess at times, but I really enjoyed that there was always a conversation going on no matter how barren and boring your zone was, and there were always times when you'd be out questing in, say, Azshara, and the actual LFG requests would catch your eye and you'd soon find yourself heading off to run a dungeon with some strangers who, over the next hour or two of tragedy and triumph, could potentially become long term friends.These days, you just put your head down and do your quests, use the LFD tool when you want to do a dungeon, meet complete strangers from various other servers that you'll never see again, and with any luck, complete the dungeon with very few wipes and nobody saying much of anything.
