Yup. And look at the tension this caused between players. God forbid you were a new player venturing into a Cataclysm heroic: you were likely to be abused, made to feel responsible for every wipe (which may well have been true, since some fights had tricky mechanics for brand new players) and then kicked. How many players were lost after running a few heroics and having that experience.Heroics have to be puggable content, since that is how they are normally done these days. Having a mechanic that kills a player if he stands in fire is okay, as long as he has a chance to get out. We'll pick him up after the fight. Having a mechanic so that the new/distracted/drunk/griefing wipes the group when he stands in the fire is NOT okay for heroics. That just leads to finger-pointing and /kicks.
