I missed that one about namecalling. Wish I had commented on that. I think people shouldn't be so offended by being called by their class name as most PUGs are consisted of strangers. Even in real life, people who just met are going to be calling each other by vague titles or some sort of distinctive quality that person has. "Girl!" "Boy!" "Lady!" "Sir!" "Freckles!" At least until they get more familiar with that person, which unfortunately doesn't happen as often in WoW anymore.That being said, I'm lucky enough that my character has a name that can be easily remembered as a nickname. Even so, I understand it when people just aren't used to it and call me "priest" instead.Now referring to me as a "dumbass priest" is something else entirely...

I have noticed a trend in WoW and it does disturb me. A lot of people are turning elitist it seems as well as being really overly sensitive. Maybe it's because the sense of community is disappearing from WoW, to me at least, in an alarming rate. Then again, I miss the days of gathering people together to raid or do a dungeon run. Yeah, it was a hassle at times, but I really miss the joking around/talking with others while waiting for the group to fully assemble. I do enjoy the LFR/LFG tools, but in some ways it has destroyed the sense of community I really miss in WoW from the ole BC days. Shinanji

I usually use %t and target the person in question. Saves me from having to remember how to type the name of someone I will only be in contact with for a dungeon run (or two) without resorting to class-calling.I made an exception when someone managed to get by the namefilter and name his char a combination of "tight" and the female reproductive organ (the c-word). I also said so: "Hunter, against my custom I'm deliberately not using your name".
