I dunno. PUGs are where I hit the highest highs and lowest lows, if you know what I mean. The rush you get when you manage to finish the optional with seconds to spare on a PUG can't be overestimated. Hell, even if you just barely miss the timer the excitement is still pretty good.

If you want the optional, you MUST be willing to be responsible for it. I always ask in teamchat and if nobody is willing, I will take KANG even if I am in an escort.

NO NO NO a million times NO. You are NOT being useless. You are performing a key, necessary function. Don't belittle your contribution because you aren't killing things, you are doing a very important job. If, and only if, you feel comfortable, you can throw a few torps at the bottom layer of probes after popping the BOP spawn; even that I would be very careful about.

Bottom line: The goalie in a soccer game is just as important as the forward. If you happen to be part of a great PUG team you shouldn't feel bad one bit.

I prefer RML myself, although on PUGs there are quite a variety as has been noted. Once we're on the R cube, I try to keep my Evasive ready so that as soon as it pops (or sometimes a little before if the team looks clued) I can head to M and stop the spawns there while the Kang guard hits the left spawn.
