"Oh, I was just making a broad statement, if you take it as an insult, do so at your own peril."
Also, it's the job of the communicator to communicate one's message correctly to one's audience, not the audience's job to "interpret" what you're "really trying to say."
Just a tip
Random thought, its mentioned that the casuals are the majority implying that they control/dominate the game. Would that not make them the elitists by definition?
I'm looking to the better players to not only be the skilled people in the group, but to offer civil assistance to those that need it. There will be instances of attempting to help lazy or ungrateful people, and they should be removed when found to be holding the group back and unwilling/unable to change for the better. But there is absolutely no need to rant and rave at people, even after attempting to help them and getting it spat back in your face. Just continue to be the better person and calmly suggest the LFR group would be more inclined to succeed if this person wasn't a part of it.

That's why I've excelled in every position I've ever held in the job market since my first management position at 19. Because mantras like this. While everyone else is complaining about things, I'm working my ass off and succeeding. Interviewed for my first job when I got out of college, and I told the guy that I planned to take his job in a very short amount of time. And I did. And then I took 3 other people's jobs until I was running the place. Because I think I'm better than others? No. Because I work harder than others and don't come up with silly mantras to make myself feel better about being mediocre. And this is something that I do in every part of my life, even in game.

I'm sure we could spend all day on the topic, but I have things to do. Feel free to google "elitists" and "elite" and make your own list.

So the solution you came up with is having them not do the runs you do....and the origional problem was them saying/ pointing out your bad and should not be in the run... do you not see the irony?

Im reading more and more crazy suggestions everyday here now. So im just gonna put in the only fix available for this game. Make it singleplayer. Problem solved
I love all these "elitist" hate threads. Yes, people can be jerks, but this works both ways. Try making twice the effort and wiping multiple times so some lazy jerk can watch tv and get free loot while you carry their load of the dps, and that of five other people as well. It gets taken too far sometimes, no doubt, but you're right this IS a game, and some people ruin it for others by showing up and taking up space and expecting to be carried and do nothing at all but get the same reward, and that builds up a certain level of resentment towards "bad players". I can respect and understand moving at your own pace, that's fine, and the people who yell at someone who are genuinely trying ARE jerks, but no more than the afk and auto attack crowd.
