There's plenty of Good DPS that aren't jerks out there just waiting for a raid slot don't give these people any more power if they leave yea it'll hurt the raid for a bit but it'll remove some fatal poison from your guild. Give them an inch they'll take a mile.

I'm a legit casual player, the reason why i say legit is because i'm not one of those casuals that cry about content being to hard, that being said i do understand that i do not have as much time to raid as my guild needs. So i became a backup for when i can come on, it has helped my guild out a lot, though i normally get swapped out during the week when the org player comes back. Which is fine, the important thing is my guild is advancing and i get to raid at all. If it wasn't for the guild i'm in now i wouldn't get to raid at all. People just need to grow up and understand that the group is not their to cater to your needs. You can't just come on and say "alright i'm here, lets raid and give me loot" it doesn't work that way.

@Larka exactly, something like that is a beautiful way to handle situations when you need more than a full raid group. Personally what my guild has done is establish a 14 man raid team with an additional 3 casual subs who aren't very big about raiding but are available if necessary. The way we manage it is having each player raid 3 weeks a month with one off week. If we have a player missing on their scheduled week we let anyone of the subs or off raid group sub in without having to take another off week. This gives everyone a break yet still lets us raid every week and gives us some protection in case of absentee players.

yeah like Scott said, I would already start recruiting. when people make demands like that, they probably don't fit in your guild. I am a guild master, and I would rather cancel a raid than beg idiots to come to the raid.
