NB. I will shamefully admit that both Azpride and I have in the past intentionally morded people wearing Elemental Shield and Mestil's Acid Sheath if they obviously did not understand positioning - and caused party kick back by wearing those buffs. Keep in mind that several people might consider doing that. Do not use those buffs in group runs if you do not know which mobs will potentially cause area wide kick back.
I enjoy leveling new characters and consequently I end up meeting a lot of new people that are visiting the site. Almost all of the new players leave. The kind of snobbish hostile behavior described above is one of the biggest complaints I hear. If you want new people here then you have to adopt a much better attitude than that.

Party KB can be a steep learning curve, and huge pain, indeed. However, for about the same hassle/time that it takes to strip all of a weaker teammate's buffs and maybe even drop their SR (e.g. Chaos Gnome, Pharlan, HC, Hf, etc. ), I prefer to disintegrate, gust etc. the offending KB mob. But, each to his own.
Vets using their knowledge and strength to seamlessly, and stoically cover their fellow party member's weaknesses is one of the best parts of HG. Call it what you like. I call it virtue.
