Got removed from flashpoint, I got lockout timer!

So, I was in queue for daily flashpoint, since on this character I'm DPS the queue is painfully long as always.

Anyway, I get grouped with an already "In progress" flashpoint, so I press Accept and before I get to quick traveled to flashpoint I get removed from group, for unknown reason. Dunno if group was trying to get in guildmate or whatever. But the worst thing is that I got lockout from groupfinder.

This is the chat log:

You join a group.
Loot is now set to Round Robin.
Loot threshold is now Premium
Szaach removed you from the group.
You have left a group while it was in-progress and have been locked out of group finder. You may not queue again until your lock out timer expires.

Sounds like a bug. Did you open a ticket?

Yep the DPS queue is so long that some tank/healer teams actually charge credits to 'run' DPS characters through the new hard modes so that they can get gear. That is right they expect to be paid about 100k credits each or they will vote to kick anyone who does not pay up.
Remember Antaria, Naboo, Starsider Server.

I'd report them as that is a bannable offense.

Yes, I opened a ticket. Talked in general chat and the exact same thing happen with another guy.

So just want to shed some more light on the issue.

It's not a bug per ce, more on the lines of an oversight. Happened to me once as well, was queued for LI HM as dps, got pop, joined, travelled to the instance and while I was loading I was kicked. Whispered the kicker about it, he just said it "was by accident", but who knows. :P He didn't try to redeem it any way, either.

Yeah if I had to guess I'd say they were either trying to get a specific person in, or they were trying to avoid getting a specific class in. Some people are weird that way.
