    This issue is a 2 sided coin...on one side you have the need roller. His view is that, in LFR, nobody actually needs any green items so they shouldnt go crazy if he rolls need. On the other side, everyone else, its bad etiquette and plain selfishness to roll on something you dont need and everyone should have a fair chance at getting for disenchant or vendoring. IRL, if you go to a 1cent candy store, and steal 20cents worth of candy and get caught, you get charged for shoplifting. Now 20cents is petty, but if they let you get away with it then the next person will try to get 50cents or even 1dollar worth of candy. You have to have a show of force to say this will not be tolerated or things will just get worse.

    The booting comes as a lesson to show everyone that rolling need on un-needed items are a no-no and if they arent booting then that will just tell the next person that you can get away with it.

    If you need on anything that pops up, greens included, what's stopping you from needing on items that I could legitimately use as an upgrade? Are you going to need on items you can't even equip? Why are you needing in the first place, because you're an ass, because you need gold (I've heard that excuse more than once, people needing on the bonus items from ZA/ZG because "I"m poor and I need it"), because you don't like how "Greeding" sounds, or is it some other, unfathomable, complicated reason? Or perhaps you're just an idiot. Perhaps it's a mis click and you're so embarrassed you can't bring yourself to apologize. I realize that it wasn't you that needed and got kicked OP, it's just simpler to express my opinion that way.

    Protip: Need on what you need and nothing else. Greed, lack of gold, stupidity and plain old obliviousness aren't good excuses to need on items you aren't actually going to make use of, ESPECIALLY in a setting like LFR. Just don't do it and you won't get kicked. Man, that got ranty.

    TL/DR: Don't have a double digit IQ.

    Exactly. Making an example of greedy people does not mean that everyone is "on a high horse". It's showing that selfish idiocy won't be tolerated.
