Some guilds are like buzzards, hovering around the world of warcraft looking for a dead carcass (a player without a guild tag). Once they see one, they swoop down to claim it and feed off of it.
Just last night I was whispered by 3 guilds asking to join them within 30 minutes when I logged on. I respectfully declined their offer since I am not sure what I want to do with Salud. But one just made me laugh.
I was first whispered asking what spec I was. I ignored the whisper thinking he was trying to get a group together to run some instance. Then again I was whispered in all caps “WHAT SPEC ARE YOU?”. I replied “Why”. At this point I am annoyed. I just hate it when people write in all caps, just a pet peeve of mine. Minutes later, literally minutes, he replied, “I AM A RECTRUITING OFFICER AND I AM ALWAYS IN THE LOOK OUT FOR NEW MEMBERS”. Again he responds in all caps, grrr.
I decided to play along, so I asked him a series of questions to get a feel what the guild is about. For example: How many are in your guild? Is your guild hardcore or casual? How far is your guild’s progression? If you raid what time do you start? He replied with the following statement “Let me ask”
You are the recruiting officer and you don’t know.
I just told him no thank you and didn’t wait for an answer.
