If there's one thing a disturbingly large segment of the WoW community needs to adjust, it's the attitude that either you're the single best healer on the server, or you suck and should quit playing. This, of course, extends to all classes. Although this school of all-or-nothing thought is completely irrational, it's so ingrained into a decent chunk of the community at large that it would be hard to dislodge. The nature of the MMO beast seems to be one of crippling stagnation when it comes to challenges. Misguided comments on the forums, such as, "Since the best of the best have downed heroic content so quickly, does this mean the expansion was a failure? Why should I even play?" only reinforce this attitude amongst the player base. It's as if one would stop playing in the company softball tournament because the Yankee's once won a World Series or two. Yep, baseball's broken. No need to ever play anything like it again. Moreover, the attitude prevails that if you're not playing on that hypothetical company softball team at a MLB level, then you suck and should quit. It's very hard to get groups together who will learn from their very human mistakes when this attitude is what one fights against constantly.
