Sadly there's nothing people can do about that, it's all about personality. But at least you've made your call in here which is something. Also GM voting thing will end with same as clans vote for their own candidates, they'll use that 10 vote for their clannies/friends.
It's actually good way to attract newbies & ungeared players into game but from my previous experiences I've never seen a noob took a drop, usually geared people rushing the spawn point with clannies and takes the drop. I guess randomized spawn points and spawn time would be better for everyone (if possible).
