I imagine your guild is better off without people like that. You probably did them a favor... good riddance I say! Rest up and heal, don't worry about dumbasses like that.
I'm not a defender of Blizzard, I'm an opponent of stupid.
To some people WoW is there life, there only importance exists within the game and whatever. However insignificant and laughable the situation may seem, someone got hurt, someones world was destroyed that day. Just so you could have a laugh and feel better? I feel guilty just thinking about it.
dont feel bad about other people being assholes. the raid wasnt even full so its not like u were taking a spot, the spots were empty. if anything u added some dps however little it was.
Sounds like complete overreaction by the dude... This late into the content.. and from the sounds of it, these are easy farm bosses for your guild, since they were 23 manning it.
You taggning along didn't make or break the evening, and since you got the loot from coin, who cares. The guy needs some perspective.
The other side of the coin is - your raidleader could have probably handled it differently - perhaps for the very same reasons - if this is just faceroll farm content, then lootbanning someone instead of just asking them politely to stop afking would have (perhaps) avoided the conflict, but sounds like the dude isn't very likeable character, so maybe there were tensions and the RL just wanted to stomp him.
Either way, not your fault
He would have brought this down on himself eventually anyway. You have nothing to feel guilty about.
My collection of mounts
WoW without flying is like having a pizza you know that you enjoy but then have someone treating you like a moron and telling you that "No, you won't enjoy THESE particular toppings for reasons WE made up". And some people are dumb enough to accept being told what to like.
of 9 or 24 people there with you, if only one guy has no compassion, then i would follow the example of the rest of the guild and let him go.
if you showed up blind to every raid then maybe i could see his point, but just a one off? You had an operation, shit happens. Hell if they couldnt replace you anyway what was the hurt!
Are you healed already?! Or is your wife reading and responding to this thread for you? If that's the case then... good wife.

my wife is responding for me i already have quite bad eyesight and struggle in the raids but i make do with audio addons and large tv lots of keybinds and ttarget macros stuff like that i will continue to raid with the help of my guild and wife for as long as my eyesight allows atm im liucky enough to be in a guild where they understand i have to have operations <laser treatments / optical correction and muscle tighterners once a month so i miss 1 or 2 raids a month which the guild has always been ok with.
The guild has just killed garrosh hc so we are not a world first pushing progression but get it done eventually and when i am able to play i am valued as a raider always do as much as i can and dont let the group down more or less then anyone else
I do stream aswell so others can see and hear the audio addons / ui i use to make these things possible put that with my wife sometimes on progresssion will sit with me and point out what she can so im lucky to do what i do with help from everyone around me
People rage over the silliest things in this game.
Just 1 thing, you seem to have an amazing Guild, do something for them once you got better!
(btw how did you type all this when your blind? :P)
