@Matt P:I agree that I would rather someone call me out than beat around the bush.But many, many casual raiding guilds have a 'no drama' policy that doesn't let people do that.While it prevents name-calling and naming names in a harmful manner, it often also creates an environment where useful or necessary criticisms are seen as 'stirring up drama.'There is a difference between helpful and harmful critiques, but these sorts of guild policies often don't differentiate.It is also possible that "the hotshot" is trying to nudge the OP into doing the things the OP obviously needs to do, like run heroics for gear. He may even think he is being polite by not calling the guy out by name, but simply saying, "Healing is inadequate for our goals, we need to gear the healers up." In the end, it seems that the OP wants to blame the new guy for creating a hostile raiding environment while the OP continues to rest on his ICC laurels, expecting the guild to both pat him on the head for showing up once a week while carrying him through the new content.That seems like a far more selfish thing than anything the new guy has done.
