And super-powered companions was introduced as a fix that would be silly to implement. You're not actually saying any ideas put forth are forbidden from being examined and questioned, are you? Or just yours?

I don't take offense to blind group invites in or near heroic zones. Those are almost expected and usually work out ok, as most I've hooked up with immediately try sharing quests before the first mob ever drops. Blind invites in normal areas is probably less tolerable though nothing I would take offense to. Now, what grates my cheese are blind guild invites. I would at least like the courtesy of a date before someone invites me in for a nightcap.
If you once enjoyed the game but no longer do because of changes that were made, then you owe it to the game, yourself and others in your same situation to be not just heard but acknowledged and fully understood.

For those that didn't know it was there / didn't know what it does ( like me ) this stops the dialog in the middle of the screen and instead gives you a message underneath your chat box instead ( presuming you also have "Attach Social Notifications to Chat" checked ), same as a "you have new mail" message, or a "Friend X has logged on" message, with a check and a cross to accept or decline.

Will definately be trying to find that option and make it work that way instead : )
I'll add to this that it works like a charm : ) Thanks again Uteboy.
While this does not change the "social" aspect of a blind invite as has been discussed (lengthily :P) in this thread, it certainly removes the practical annoyance it can form. Bioware got one right that time.

Yeah, it's definitely a nice option. One of those "Duh" moments when you find that something you wanted has been available all along.
