It's interesting to me when I read about stuff like this, and certain things stick out at me, like "leadership positions."

I guess it's fortunate that the guild I ended up in is basically a boys club (though there are a few women including a married couple.) or at least the officers/leaders seem to be young guys mostly. The reason being is there aren't a lot of rules or regulations or regiments.

No way in hell could I stand someone giving me orders or having authority over me in a game I pay to play.

I suspect we'll never be anywhere on the leaderboards, that's for sure. Paragon we ain't.

It's not like that. The 'officers' simply have control of the guild bank and decide who joins the guild (that isn't a Friend or Family member of an existing guild member - those get in for the asking). They are also the ones that settle disputes and such. They TEND to also be the raid leaders - they are the ones with the patience and drive to herd cats.

Guess it depends on the guild.

I quit several guilds in EQ2 and SWG because the leader(s) were constantly trying to tell me what to do.

My friend is in an EQ2 guild that during raids constantly tells him to "please keep your language PG-13."

What in the hell is that about? I'd have told them to blow me long ago.
