WoW community was pretty bad way before LoL got popular.
And I think you're wrong about not helping them, I've helped some pretty direly bad players in the past, and was able to get acceptable performance increase out of them, granted I went out of my way to make it happen, but saying no ammount of help is going to make them better is not entirely acurate, some people can and will take on board advice given in a constructive manner.
Raging and piss taking will never make anyone better though, it's only going to antagonise and cause an argument that never needed to be had.

Somebody isn't doing well, the first port of call is to blame them rather than to help them.
Somebody dings 90, they're a new player, they've probably never heard of Icy Veins, Elitist Jerks etc... they don't have a damage meter or a way to gauge their damage against other players.
They enter a dungeon/raid, get paired with some experienced players, they get told they're shit, shouted at and possibly kicked. Then the cycle repeats.
Hopefully proving grounds should fix this but it's a sad state of affairs when the community is so bad the devs have to design an entire game mode just to plaster a problem
I got my account with its 12 90 from ebay.

1. Those going all angry and stomping on bad players;
2. Bad players going all enrage for being stomped on;
And then there is people like me. People that won't stand down to either of those 2 =D.
I said with a posed look.
I never implied any of the above at all, I am simply stating that the game does NOT teach you the best DPS rotations for your spec and the community does not help this situation at all.
This is getting addressed in the next patch with proving grounds I hope, but right now it is not always (key word always) the player's fault if he is doing poor dps/healing/tanking
All these people saying they always get into groups with assholes must have the worst luck known to man. I rarely get grouped with assholes/rude people. Granted I'm usually the most geared person in the group and it wouldn't make sense to be a dick to the person doing the carrying, but even on my not so geared alts I rarely run into these types of people.
The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.
On a fight like Ahune poor DPS can make it horribly slow and dreadful, but it's not the lower geared players who you should watch out for, it's jut the players actually doing poor DPS.
Generally I'm patient enough to just continue doing my job unless someone is consistently causing us to wipe over and over again for the same reasons (and refusing to do something about said reasons).
My DPS dk guildie and I (BRM tank) carried a group of trade pickups through MSV10 the other day, and while certain people kept getting themselves killed and we had multiple players at the 30-50k DPS range, shit was still dying quickly thanks to 534 monk and 537 dk powa and we never wiped once. Basically, the only person complaining about the 30k dps rogue that was constantly dying was the 60k dps priest.
You thumbs up the good players and continue to play with them, so long as they thump up you. All the jerks don't get a thumps up, they go into the cesspool. You can't really troll this system, because the amount of troll players will always be less than the positive ones. Like I said, 100 player server and 10 are total dicks, even if the trolls only vote for trolls thats 10 votes each, compared to 90 votes that the "good" players get.
The only negative impact would be all the trolls flocking to the forums and asking why the hell they're stucking with 2 hour long ques and having to group with douchebags. I can live with that, as it serves them right.
