Don't kick your brother from your guild, no matter how he behaves.When something goes bad in "Real" life its your family who you need too look too, not some fake internet friends!I'm sorry scott but that was bad advice.

Mmmm... I don't agree. Compare WoW to any other hobby that involves other people. Let's say you and a bunch of your friends get together every week to play some kind of sport, just for fun. Your brother plays with you, and you're the one who organizes the games from week to week, just because you have a good, leadership-type personality. Because he's your brother, you've given your brother some kind of position of authority as well. When you can't make it to the games, your brother throws his weight around and tells everyone he's the boss and is basically a dick. Your friends aren't having as much fun at the games when he's doing this, and may be considering not attending anymore. You can spend time with your brother outside of these games, but maybe the games are one of the only times you can spend time with these friends, due to other commitments (or in the case of WoW, physical distance). Personally, because I can do other things with my brother in Real Life, or spend time in game with him without having to be guilded with him, I would definitely save the dynamic of the guild over having my brother in the guild. Family only comes first when they aren't ruining your hobby (providing of course that your hobby isn't also ruining your relationship - see marriages with people who spend too much time playing WoW and not enough with their spouses). You can have fun without your family if they are funsucking, and you can have fun WITH your family without causing them to funsuck - you just have to find the right activity.
