Exactly. People would rather run an instance in 30 minutes with trolls then spend twice as much time trying to organizes groups. Otherwise, people will just choose not to use LFD and it won't affect the game.

Pre-LFD they had to behave, after they showed their true colors, like I said, i don't object to same server LFD but cross server DOES ruin communities.
That really has nothing to do with the LFD it has everything to do with an influx in the population of the game the unfortunate truth is that every game has d bags and ninjas but the percentage of the population that are is about the same between games. At the time wow had ~12million players and unfortunately that means that they had a higher d bag count than this game has subscribers.

A lfd tool is going to happen. Its just a matter of time as BW gets up to speed.
Every major mmo today has a lfd tool of some sort. It is a common mmo tool in todays market. With out its its like buying a TV and finding out once you got home that there was no remote!
Inside the box is a note saying that the company feels that people are getting lazy so they decided to not include a remote so you have to get up to change channels or volume.

If you played for example wow before the dungeon finder (cross realm) and after then you know what he is talking about.

People are getting too crazy on the "Preserve a good community".

Just because YOU want to wait 1-6 hrs to find a group, doesn't mean we should. If the argument was "I want cross server LFG" vs "It destroys our community" then fine, that is 100% understandable.

But, when the argument transforms into "I want a single server LFG" vs a "People are getting too lazy and I was able to wait 6 hrs back in the day, so you should to", then that is so wrong.

In no way, does that destroy a community. If a person ninjas, he will be known as a ninja. All someone has to do, is announce it to everyone. If someone doesn't want to wait 1-6 hrs to find a group, then more power to them. Personally, my limitations are 2 hrs MAX(for a flashpoint), and 6-8hrsMAX(For an Operation, which I haven't done yet).

Stop being selfish. The only thing that I would accept as an argument vrsing single server is this: Allow level 40's-50's to use it only. That way, you can build up your friendships for 29 levels. However, the lower levels would start complaining, but that would be for another thread.

Back in the day, PS2 online, we never had a mic. We had to communicate either by "messaging before a matchup", or "Jumping up and down/shooting at something".

Just because I never used a mic(They had them, but it was a late bloomer), I don't / never complained that Xbox/PS3 users shouldn't use them. How would you feel if TV remotes were never invented? Would you argue that's a good thing because people are becoming too lazy? Hey, who needs cars, when people had horses, they were able to converse with eachother while riding.

Why have your own private house? I feel as if every person should live in the same home, and get to know eachother. You know, because if a family decides to live within their own house, then there won't be as much communication.

Also, get rid of cell phones/house phones, along with the Internet. People should instead, walk / ride their horse to their friends house and see if they can hangout. It's worth wasting 30 minutes riding/walking to their house only to find out that they can't. It's the communication that matters.

Cross server Dungeon Finders, Raid Finders, Life Finders, etc. makes it entirely too easy for riff raff to get away with what riff raff does. Having the queues restricted to same servers puts consequences back into people's actions. I believe that is one of the key "community" concerns being expressed, and is more than valid in evironments where people coexist - virtually or otherwise.
