I quit WoW before BC and I have no interest in flaunting anything. I run with my guild, they generally know what I can and can't do and so do I.
Also I disagree that the pro-dps meter people are in the minority, among the people I've asked there's almost a 3 to 1 positive response to them.
So you're saying that dps'ers will neglect skills that aren't the best choice for pumping out more dps? Wow, what a concept. It's not like I don't already to that, and I imagine any player with decent skill does that as well. So your argument here is it will cause the dps classes to improve.... neat.
A DPS meter is not a crutch. It does not make things easier, it gives you a gauge.
So far your primary argument is a dps meter will only make the problem worse, but your reinforcement is that it will cause people to pick optimal skills over sub-par ones. Which is exactly *why* most of us who want the meter... want them.
It would be nice to have some concrete numbers that skill x is less effective than using skill y in this situation because it puts out less damage, and is therefore less effective rather than just eyeballing. Not saying I am incapable of eyeballing, just having the actual numbers would be nice.
I can generally tell about how long a foot is, but I'm not going to start making cuts to build something without taking measurements first.
