I don't hide the fact that as an MMO gamer, I probably fall into the "casual" category by many of your definitions. Even so, I probably go dungeon diving in RIFT more than in other MMOs because of the game's silky-smooth LFG interface and the generally quick pace of the instance runs themselves....

One of our readers, Bowzer, wrote in the other night about dropping a group instantly on seeing a homophobic slur in party chat.
