Damage meters have their place, but very rarely as a tool to show your damage. How much damage you're doing can be meaningless if the damage you're doing is limited by your spec and gear. If they're getting the best out of their situation, but other players are doing better, it's not really fair to say "you're doing crap DPS, /kick".I, for example, am very often 3-4th on damage in our raids, usually by a percent or two, but sometimes significantly more. My RL loves having me around. Why? He looks at the interrupts, dispel and damage taken aspect of the meters and nots that the reason my DPS is lacking is because I /stopcasting a lot more than other casters. I make life easier on my healers and tanks. As long as we're all above a threshold, DPS is fine.
