Whining about problem employees instead of working with problem employees to make them better

Many times lower level players will try their chops in the battleground. This irritates the upper level players more often than not. Instead of offering to help them through some of the in game quests, or offer gear tips, the older players just whine about how unfair it is that a lower level character is ruining their shot at victory.

Sometimes skill and not level don't come into play. Learn to play (l2p) comments spring up about green battleground participants, instead of constructive comments whispered across servers on how to better address a given situation.

The parallel that I would draw to Library science would be the circular argument that it is important to hire degreed Librarians since they have their master's degree. Is this bar correct in all instances? Should that be our gauge? How should we prove through doing that it is the case?
How do we invest in teaching a layman the ropes? Wouldn't it be worthwhile to grow our own Librarians and Administrators as Carole McConnell (http://www.ala.org/ala/alonline/tableofcontents/toc2004/october2004.cfm), more recently Judith Nixon (http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1106&context=lib_...), and many others have advocated. The recent decision that ALA made to put American Libraries up for everyone to see, is a small step in the right direction.

Maslow's Heirarchy of Needs when applied to the workplace teaches us that people really are out to do the best job possible, and really do want to work up to the complex tasks. It's up to every administrator to make that possible.
