Maybe instead of disbanding you should have simply passed leadership to someone else. We're only getting one side of your story, which paints you in a perfect light, so I'm more likely to side with the rest of the guild you shafted by clicking the digital equivalent of "take my toys and go home". Usually when there's a problem in a guild, both sides have their share of blame. Petulantly disbanding your guild because people wouldn't do what you wanted makes it sound like you have some culpability too.I'm the leader of my guild, and I wouldn't dream of disbanding it. If I got upset enough to leave, I'd pass leadership to someone else. I helped found it, but when a guild is formed, it becomes more (in my mind) than just the property of the leader. It becomes the property of everyone who helped it get to where it was. I was worried about exactly this sort of scenario when they mentioned the addition of guild achievements and levels before Cataclysm. What I'd like to see is some sort of system that requires at least two people to disband a guild - or no disband option at all. It certainly would fix the problem of guild leaders getting hacked and then everyone in the guild, even the people who are proactive about account security, getting punished.For more casual players with less time to invest, losing the perks and the reputation is a big deal. I'd be in a world of hurt on my main if something like that happened to me, because I have finished all the existing daily hubs in Cata and have done all the quests in the game except for the new 1-60 content that wouldn't provide much guild rep anyway. It would take forever for me to get back to exalted. Most of the benefits appeal greatly to people who have less time to play (the 15 minute hearth, for example, is invaluable for archaeology or any sort of travel if you continent hop a lot, and heirlooms, the XP boosts, and the reputation boosts all help people with grinds). One rogue person shouldn't be able to take that away from potentially hundreds of people with a single mouse-click.
