Blame the people, not the addons. kinda like we should blame guns for all the wars we humans have caused
if youre "undergeared" and slow down your group, at least drink a flask ^^
But, if your time is precious to you, and people don't matter, you can always just run with guildies and friends so you are not imposed upon to help out a lesser knowledgeable player. It's ok. They are used to being mocked and ignored. It is why they don't care when they join LFR.
ON TOPIC: I think Recount and Skada should only be usable in raids and only by the raid leader. This would insure it is used for its intended purpose and not just an epeen stroke or an excuse to kick someone / embarass them.

Secondly, I have to again reference my previous post. The real kicker here is that there's not much I could teach someone that they couldn’t learn faster on their own. The basics are really really easy to learn. You could Google them up 10x faster than I could teach you through chat. I might meet with some limited success in teaching someone the finer points of how to play their class – but that’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about people who have such a shitty grasp of the game that all four (or 18 of 25 or whatever LFR is) of the other people in group would rather have them gone than try to deal with them.
My firm belief is that the vast majority of people who are ejected for poor performance could correct that problem with less than 30 minutes on the web. I have no patience or pity or desire to help people who refuse to help themselves. What you’re asking is for two people to do the job of one, in a less efficient manner, when one of the two (maybe both!) don’t even want to be there in the first place. It’s not really a logical request.
In the real world, butterfly wings don’t create tsunamis.

I agree that helping EVERY player is a bit unrealistic, also, it is unlikely anyone would play 24/7, so that is more or less exaggeration. My point was, for the 1-2 hours people are logged in per day, they are likely to find someone who wants help, and needs help, but might not know how to ask for it. It hurts nothing to help 1 person per day. Even if everyone else is completely ignored in a 12 hours day of play, helping 1 person, 1 time, can make a difference. It usually takes 10 mins, not 2.5 hours (again exaggeration).
There will be some players who do not want help, who are there simply for "lulz", or just don't care enough to want to learn. These players are easily spotted and easily ignored. I'm certainly not saying we need to help everyone, but it would be nice if more players would help 1 someone I do agree that most players who are ejected, deserve the ejection for one reason or another. I just want to make sure we are not tossing aside a good apple, just because a spoiled apple was in the same barrel, or because the skin "looked" bad.
