I don't have a problem with people who choose to watch the cutscenes, while I have seen them a lot, I don't pay for their account and refuse to tell them how to play.
Problem I have is when I created my first pub toon that I actually took through flashpoints, I had never done Taral 5 and Maelstorm. I was up front about this and when I chose to watch the cutscenes, I was kicked out of the group as it was 3 guildmates that were the group and myself. Again, I told them I had not seen the Taral 5 stuff and was going to watch it, no reply, kicked out of group and this was story mode.
If you were kicked out of a guild group then you have a ****** guild.
