An older post but felt I needed to ask this again :)
OK, so we’ve all experienced it, you pick up the pug and head off to that random, the run’s going ok and then for whatever reason someone dies, maybe it’s your fault (I mean it happens, nobody’s perfect) or most likely it’s not, or it’s just bad luck, whatever.. And then it starts… OMFG,WTF,NOHEALZ,RETARD,NOOB etc etc you know the situation, the abuse, we’ve all been there .. and yes stronger sanctions from Blizz are needed for it but that’s a different thread.
So the real question is what’s the best way to respond?
1) Ignore it – stoically plough on through having to listen to it
3) Try and reason with the unreasonable
4) Try and patiently explain what actually did go wrong even to those who are usually not listening
5) Fight fire with fire … (some of my fav’s listed below, lifted from the web))
I'm Rez spec'd
I can heal your health bar, but I can't heal stupid and believe me you really are
That was half the dungeon. I do dungeons, not jailbreaks
I'll heal better if you tank/dps better
I am trying to top the Rez meter..
I’m after the 1000000 rez’s achievement
Heal? I thought I was just here for the Fort buff
It's more mana efficient to resurrect than to heal
I’m a priest, I prayed for you! The Gods didn't answer
The 3 Basic Rules Of Grouping:
If the tank dies, it's the healer's fault
If the healer dies, it's the tank's fault
If DPS dies, it's their own fault – control your aggro and use your CC
/p Now resurrecting %t.
/p Side effects may include headache, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, vomiting, insomnia, or anal retention. If you are pregnant or have a pace maker, please read additional warning labels before clicking 'accept'. Resurrection is not for everyone; please consult your healer before dying.

Sorry I was distracted by the telly
I've lost that lovin' healing... oooohhh… . that lovin’ healing …
I was busy rolling my face across my keyboard …
It was the tank or you, I decided on a cheaper repair bill
I’m so tempted to go with a few of these on macros, I know it’s wrong, right, right … must…. resist….
So, what do you think is the right thing to do… and what do you actually do?
