Kinda off topic, but it touches on poaching so I thought I would ask here. Recently I had a falling out with my guild due to a certain immature member. I had been dealing with him trying to entise drama with me for quite some time and he has forced others to gquit in the passed. When I kicked him (which I stated was temporary until he could calm down and compose himself) another officer immediately re-invited him and not 10 seconds later he started in with his comments again.About 3 weeks later the GM (who to this day I am still on good terms with, he even fills in for my raids when a member can't be on) told me that they were finally getting a group together to do the guild achiev for fish feast (something id been organizing for months due to 6000 of the 7000 fish caught so far were done by me and 2 other people). I was excited for them to get the feast and offered an extra fisherman to go with them, I rejoined temporarily on an alt solely to fish. About a half hour into the endeavor the guildy who had forced me to leave logged on and started running his mouth yet again because I had "come crawling back". I immediately gquit again, apologized to the GM and told him I wish I could have helped more, and got my alt back into my new guild. The other people I raid with now all saw this go down, and 3 of them were actually not going to join the guild because of this one player who for some reason is not gkicked but I convinced them to come anyway for the percs of being in a semi large guild so we would have replacements for our raid if needed. All of them decided to gquit later that day (after getting their feasts of coarse) and joined my "bank" guild which is now our raiding guild. The GM is still friendly with us, as I stated earlier but my question is did I "poach" these 9 other players or were they and myself just forced to find a new home due to an issue with one member that wasn't being dealt with.And yes, I did indeed tell them to come switch guilds as soon as I originally gquit and was trying to convince them to for a few weeks before the final incident occured.
