It seems to me the main source of contention seems to be a clash of people who like in-depth stories, and people who like to how to put this... "Concentrate on the killing. Personally, since this is the first (and likely only MMO I will ever play, I am a story person. That said, is it really so hard to get along? Right now, they want to focus on people who want to concentrate on combat. It's good to take turns. However many thousands of people play this game nobody plays it like anyone else. Frankly, the very idea that the people in charge should even attempt to give everyone exactly what they want is ludicrous!

What I love about the game, the freedom to play as I choose to play! What I dislike: Well, the 'two players needed' to get certain datacrons is awful! The CXP being so slow, when you can get to MAX level before chapter 1 is done, is awful too. I'm still on my class stories, so I am new. Personally, I'd like to say how admirable the Staff has been considering the amount of vitriol tossed around on the I-Net so keep up the good work!

The problem is a desperation that was built up in the last two years. When people feel like they are being heard and their needs met, they will be less likely to instantly jump to do battle with opposing thoughts. Right now some people are caught in the "there can only be one" mentality and if they think that they are going to try their hardest to be the one.

Given time, most will likely calm down and the people who are just not mature enough to share will be obvious. Things will likely even out.
If you like my stronghold threads such as this and this, please consider using my referral link. It will reward us both. Or you could post your support for one of my threads.

LFG tools are different from GF and can have additional helpful features for grouping with friends and looking for custom group compositions. They also allow you to list your requirements one time like on GTN (but with custom text) instead of spamming Chat channels. Additionally, you can be anywhere in the game doing anything while waiting for the group to form; no need to wait in a specific location like fleet. Guild Wars (from 2006) and Guild Wars 2 have such features.
A "Forum troll" posts outrageous messages to bait people into answering, to sow discord and to derail the discussion. Don't feed the troll, add to your Ignore List.

I have to say regardless of what people think of GW2 as a game, in terms of features and devs commitment, it is great. SWTOR devs could learn a thing or two from GW2.

Unfortunately, yes, I think it really is hard to get along. Think of developing SWtOR as being like feeding a pack of starving dogs. There is only enough kibble for one dog to get a full belly and the pack knows that. When they see that bowl of kibble coming they will fight to get what they can. The bigger, stronger dogs will get most of the food, but not enough to be satisfied, and the smaller, weaker dogs will be lucky to get any food at all. Now if there was enough kibble for all dogs to get a decent meal, then you could ask for them to sit pretty and wait their turn.

One thing I think is important when giving feedback is being clear and concise. I have seen a lot of people giving feedback using very vague terms. Like people saying they want PvE content when what they really mean is group content. Or saying group content when what they really mean is classic operations. KotET provided quite a bit of PvE group content at launch, but it wasn't the right PvE group content. If you ask for PvE content and they give you Uprisings and DvL world bosses, they are giving you what you said you wanted. Don't leave room for misinterpretations.
Still waiting for Quinn's "meaningful" reunion!

Blizzard have this for their games (Warcraft/Overwatch). It's called player ID and you don't even need to be in the same game, in the game or on the same faction.
It's a great system to organise your friends and guilds to do activities when you are all spread out.
