If you want to only run with people from your realm, just go back to the good old LFG spam. Remembering the slow old days makes me think that people want the speed and convenience of the LFD tool, while being able to cut down on the less desirable players. Having a group purely from your realm isnt going to remove the fools- alot of GMs don't care how individuals act when not in a raid, so there are still going to be idiots. Spamming trade about people who've ninjad stuff can get close to harrassment.Fast queues arent the problem. People aren't more likely to mess around because there are short queues. People who are going to act like idiots will do it anyway.What this change does give is greater interaction between the community on each realm. It'll be easier to build a reputation as a good player, (idiots and bad players are just going to get ignored). That doesn't mean you won't still get people who are new to an instance, gearing up, just dinged 85 etc- they're present on every realm.The idea that realm dungeons are going to go more smoothly is misguided. You may well get a group who've never been there before, so it'll go slowly with alot of wipes, or you may get a cross realm group of people who've farmed every instance so much that no-one speaks and every pull is perfect.It does have extra potential to help guild recruitment- if you join a pug where there are 4 others in a guild on your realm, then you immediately have more of a chance to meet more potential recruits.
