I do the same thing. I have seen too much already to know that its not something I want to subject myself to if I am going to be playing a game. I play to get away from jerks not go find more, and even sometimes, they find me but not often because I try not to go into town too much unless I have to or into other populated areas unless I have to. If I do, I do what I came there to do and leave.
Yes I have heard all that mess of "grow thicker skin" and all that, and the answer, no. I'm not going to change myself just to play a game. I do my time in that at work, I'm not about to start not being myself in a game. I'm getting really skilled at staying away and watching from a distance, turning off chat, getting out of trade chat and trying real hard to just ignore what I do have to read at times.
Its the only way now that I can enjoy this game. Yes I give up LFR/LFG and most dungeon runs, that's fine, there is always something to give up for something else. I'll pay that price rather than be around what I have seen from a distance, heard in chat before I turned it off, and read about.
Not to say your wrong if your doing it differently because that is fine but these passive aggressive, demanding, patronizing, snarky, and down right nasty comments are something I can easily do without. I know I can't stop it, but I can stay away from it and I do.
