I'll also grant you the fact that mistweavers are not in the best spot right now, but that's the problem with the monks, not with paladins. Having to balance melee vs standard healing and chi generation (aka jab-jab-uplift) completely screwed things up for them imo. But it has nothing to do with paladins.
Paladins have crappy mana costs, forcing them into boatloads of spirit. When I see, for instance, druid guides starting with something in the tune of "more than 10k spirit is not really necessary", it makes me want to bash my head on the wall. I'm not even gonna mention pre-nerf mistweaver monks, because that was frankly ridiculous. And I'm not even going to mention disc priests, especially pre-5.2
It seems to me you're just raging at your two paladin guildies more than anything else.
