1-2 minutes is nothing. Complain again when it's 5-10 minutes, that's more reasonable.
And no, I don't go choose to go AFK during groups. I wait til it's over before I tend to my personal matters. If there is an exceptional matter that needs my attention and will take me a long time, I have the decency to leave or not accept the queue.
Can still play and talk on the phone at the same time.

Pretty sure deserter is intended when you get kicked, at least if you get kicked while outside the instance. Many people would get instances they didn't want only to port out and tell the party to kick them so that they wouldn't get deserter.
“To who do you reward the right to decide which speech is harmful, or who is the harmful speaker? Or to determine in advance what are the harmful consequences going to be, that we know enough about in advance to prevent? [...] It may not be determined in advance what words are apt or inapt. No one has the knowledge that would be required to make that call.”
- Christopher Hitchens, 1949 - 2011
Try this then, enter a scenario and it never get's started due to the other people just dropping group instantly, seeing as I was the only one left I ported out.... I get a debuff, I checked before leaving too, I was indeed the only one in the instance and there was nobody left in the group.
HOOKED ON DIABLOL, GOOD TIMES ARE BEING HAD
1. Sign for LFD
2. Enter vehicle
3. Accept queue(without entering due to vehicle)
4. Check which instance it is - enter if you like it, stay out if you don't
5. Wait for kick - you now avoid the deserter without ever entering the instance
If Blizzard makes/made a system that takes this into account then they are doing the right thing. 15 minutes debuff isn't enough to stop people from abusing the LFD to only join groups for instance X.
God this community is pathetic. It takes 2 minutes to clear the trash to the boss. OP did't waste anyones time. They wasted the OPs time.
You are not your role. You are not how much gold you have on your account.
You are not the mount you ride. You are not the contents of your bank.
You are not your epic purples. You are not a special and unique snowflake.
You are the all-grinding, all-farming crap of Azeroth.
then stop your quest leave vehicle or dont queu when knowing your gonna get this effect its like ppl enter a dungeon then go afk to eat .... then dont queue
Same Shit Different Day
Well, in all honesty you could have easily jumped out of the vehicle, and gotten straight into the dungeon (you can be in combat and go straight to the dungeon the first time entering). While they could have been a little more patient, you were the one being most inconvenient. It sucks, yes, but I'm sure they wanted to blast through there as fast as possible.
Also, as for the deserter thing, it may have been that since you never zoned in, it automatically gave that to you. Normally there's a 15 minute timer after just entering a dungeon group before you can queue for another random, perhaps the message was just bugged?
Similar to the dungeon queue, you have a 15 minute timer that starts after you accept and enter any LFD/R/S instance where you cannot queue again. It's there to avoid people abusing the system. For instance someone could enter an instance they don't like, kill a few trash and be gone within 5 minutes and be scott free, inconveniencing the group. This way it is at least maintained a little.Actually it is, got anything to add other than trolling posters?
Unless the above situations are happening daily, they're really not a huge deal and you definitely need to simply learn how to put up with it. Are these systems inconvenient at times? Yes. But it saves a lot of grief from people who abuse the system.

"If I didn't have bad luck I'd have no luck at all."
The game has in the past started giving the debuffs for wrong reasons, i've previously tried battlegrounds that closed due to lack of people that gave everyone deserter, or battlegrouds that already ended and gave you deserter. Sometimes broken really is broken.
Queued for a random dungeon on my 66 priest, got OHF, yey, quests and shit ye? Wrong. Group tried to queue for Sethekk Halls like 4 times immediately because they didn't get the random they wanted, and kicked me because I refused to. D*cks - and I'M the one who gets the deserter buff. Lame huh?
OR, if you decide to accept you should understand that it will be you who will pay the consequences. If you fail to finish your quest in a grace time given to you by blizzard (I'm quite sure that its either 2 or 3 minutes, not less), or if you fail to convince your party to wait for you, you will get kicked and receive your punishment.
Who do you think is the bad guy is in this situation?
- Blizzard, that allows groups to kick players that don't participate in clearing dungeon.
- A party , who decided that they don't want to spend their own time for a person who did not even say "please".
- Or a player who decided that his time is more important than other 4 players time, and for some reason thought that it is up to him to decide whether to make them wait or not.
Lets make some simple calculations. He decided to save himself 3 minutes of time tops. While other party members waited 4x2 = 8 minutes combined. It seems to me that he acted pretty selfish and the kick was well deserved.
