I like the idea of some type of player-driven feedback at the end of a run. Admittedly, I have no concept of how to implement any such system. It seems that a simple "Would/would not group with this person again" button would allow people to tailor their LFD experience a bit. If we treat the "would not run option" as a personal ignore, the system polices itself. Imagine I'm a snotty, asshateryist in the LFD runs. If I unjustifiably "downrate" a good player, I won't run with them again. At some point, I'm going to have downrated anyone who is worth a damn, allowing those players to enjoy their experience with out my asshatting. Further, I'm relegated to running with new players/fresh 85s. It's in my interests to use the system wisely or I shoot myself in the foot in the long run. If however, I uprate people, I increase my chance of running with them if we're in the same queue at the same time. You get to make a choice. Is my incredibly sexy DPS worth any asshatedness you put up with on my account? If not, seeyabuhbye. As the ratings develop, tanks and healers have the opportunity to uprate/downrate so they have a better chance at getting DPS who know the fights, their role, and can pump out the kind of damage needed for efficient runs. Even players who are less geared can overcome their low DPS by not acting like idiots. And for the record, I've tremendously enjoyed the multitude of asshat conjugations in this thread. Bravo all!

I like this idea. A lot of people will just sign off without bothering, but your choices are only influencing your own Qs. Not sure how hard it would be to implement though.
