It is, unfortunately, the nature of the beast. It is not the first game it has happened in, nor will it be the last. Back when we where the main guild on Balance, we where called bullies for running harvester ganks and organizing an extremely loose faction into a somewhat cohesive force able to take and hold forts and keeps. Everyone started jumping to one faction when they did the wipe for 5.5 and then 5.6 for harvesting. My point is, it doesn't matter if there is bright new shiny, easier harvesting, or people just wanting an excuse to cause drama in the community, there will always be the potential for this to happen in a game such as this. If it gets to be a constant problem, then maybe the gods should look at implementing something. I have read a few good ideas but I won't rehash them.
If you will all excuse me, I need to refill my popcorn.
