Don't respond to such silliness. It isn't adding anything to the discussion.
DI on the tank has wiped many a raid. I'm sure we need to remove that spell. Or repeated polymorph on the target we want to kill. So let's remove the sheep.
There are ways to make the use of the spell annoying/griefing to others. There are also ways where I can see the bad application of it may perhaps provoke a raid wipe. But there are other spells that do and did the same for years. It's mostly a learn to use correctly issue. There are interesting good possibilities for that spell:
If there is an automatic minus-threat applied with it, then it can be used as an external tank swap spell. If there isn't minus-threat, then it might be used as an external tanking cooldown, giving the tank a short window of time where he is pulled away from the mob and doesn't get hit until the boss can catch up.
Void zones, deep breaths, disconnects (!!) - you can now safe one player. "We can't heal stupid" is a funny mantra of the priest class, but now we might actually fix other peoples stupid a little bit sometimes.
Target swaps optimizing might be another interesting thing. There are lots of possibilities. Yes you might be able to grief with it too. But if you're worried about evil Priests preventing you from dealing damage, just collect the branches until the current holliday event ends. You can turn them into silenced bunnies - and that even without a cooldown for revenge.
