I pose to you another question:Is it worth playing if you can't succeed?If the raid member's disability is literally causing the failure of the raid, is it right for that person to insist on a raid spot? Knowing that he is the direct cause of the problem and is preventing his own enjoyment along with the other 9/24 raid members, shouldn't that person volunteer to sit out?Is that a tricky, delicate problem? Of course. Dealing with a disability is hard, not just for the disabled, but for those that interact with them. The unfortunate truth is that disabilities prevent people from doing certain things. Someone paralyzed from the neck down doesn't go skydiving. Someone who is blind does not drive a car. I will make the risky and probably unpopular statement: If someone with a disability is causing the raid to fail, they should bow out.I'm sorry. I am well aware that is not fun to hear. It totally sucks, but life with a disability is hard. Yes, there are some things a disable individual won't be able to do. Effectively raiding current content might be one of those things.
