So, what I need to do is *not* throw my toys out of the pram and put that person on /ignore because that would make little sense of guild chat and I would not do that to a guildie, except for a very short time. I need to *not* /gquit over this because, otherwise this guild is a VERY good fit for me.
What I need to try to do is that, if I am in a fragile mood and would be better off not seeing that person talking in guild chat, I need to either quit WoW and knit/read or switch to one of my un-guilded toons on another server. As soon as I find myself wanting to minimise the chat window that I have /g in I need to remove myself from any toons in that guild. If I need to stay because I am part of a guild raid or something similar then I need to try to remember my anti-stress remedies and … care less, as in, "I couldn't…" I know that works. I just wish that I could remember things like that.
If being stressed and triggered to F*** my some bloke (on WoW, else-web or in RL) then remove self from said situation or, if that is not possible or not enough, do the anti-stress remedies.
Mantra: DO NOT RISE TO THEIR (likely unintended) BAIT!
Comments disabled because this really does not need any discussion. I have noticed my behaviour and come up with a possible solution. Now I just need to remember it when triggered and/or stressed.
So, this has been 50% rant/vent and 50% realisation/decision. I now return you to your regularly scheduled LiveJournal.
