Some people (like me) don't like random team invites though. Make sure they know why you're trying to team with them before inviting.
I hate random invites of any kind, and I have argued against them in every game I have played. They are rude. Proper etiquette is to send a tell asking if someone wants to join a team giving the reasons for the invite, etc. However, he is not talking about a random invite in this case.

He asked specifically about being in a Borg Invasion instance. There are only five people in the instance, and everyone knows why they are there. Expecting a detailed explanation of why you are sending an invite in such cases is a waste of everyone's time. In such cases, the invite is hardly random.

You are correct about most situations, but there are cases where explanations are redundant and unnecessary.
