Dan said they are aware of the problem and are looking into options to combat this.

In another game I have played, team members can report a player AFK and they will be marked as idle, preventing them from receiving any benefits from the run until they engage in combat. Sure, this may not work with trolls looking to just run around and cause problems for your group, but to an AFKer this is probably the worst thing. If we had something like that, I am sure it would significantly reduce the AFK problem once people were aware that they wouldn't get anything if they just sit in a run doing nothing.
now THAT sounds promising :O

It has the benefits of not being a troll tool of 3vote kick off, (well not unless a player has blown up in the last slither of boss hp..) but that seems unlikely.

But yeah, kinda wish this would be implemented,
Sit about = no reward
Forces people to at least contribute

Only sad thing is, like you said, if there are trolls, they can still mess things up, but i suppose the vote-idle is to target afkers, not trolls ^^
