I would consider myself part of your "raiding professional" category, and I am my guilds Main Tank. I agree with everything you say, and no promise of a low drop rate at a mount is going to make me queue randoms. I would rather sit around until more guildies come on than deal with the possibility of a bad group.Every so often I give it a try again, and i am instantly reminded why that was a poor decision. The other night was one of those nights. H-tol'vir, DK keeps running ahead and having his pet charge into every pack. The healer had 2 epics (i always check their gear first) and we should have been throwing down at least 1 cc. When I tried to talk to the DK and tell him to stop pulling/charging in, his response was, "Oh you're one of those f_g tanks." After trying to reason with him, i tried to kick him but it said he couldn't be kicked for 5 more minutes. I felt bad for the rest of the group, but i decided to drop group. Anyway, long story a lot longer than it should be, the vote kick tool needs to be changed somehow, or maybe I just don't understand the full limitations of it. But if someone like that DK is griefing my group, i should be able to get rid of them, no limitations.

The sad part is it could be anyone; it doesn't have to be an aggressive DPS. I've run with bad tanks and, I'm sure, bad healers.Blizzard really needs to put in a reputation system (or something similar) that can't be gamed by the idiots. Votekick is a nice feature but it really should be reserved for things like the perpetual AFK-er or the person who, literally, doesn't know what they're doing.I'm (usually) the 3rd tank in my guild - but since we're not raiding I'm not doing a lot of randoms. I'm just screwing around on alts or helping fill out guild 5-man randoms. I'll tank if pushed into it, since I know how and have decent gear, but I have no desire to subject myself to idiots.
