I think about it like roleplaying: My play style isn't compatible with a lot of gaming groups (story and gameplay come before rules and rolls) so I'm very careful who I play with. The same just now applies to 40k. It's a shame we need to operate this way but, given the balance and interpretive issues, that's the reality with which we need to deal.
When I play against people I know aren't douchebags who use decent lists (not garbage but not crazy overpowered) I know I'm going to have a good time. I like going to events like GS because I'm prepared for crazy lists and possibly some douchebaggery but might meet a new person to add to my regular group of opponents. If you have a really good game at a tournament you know the person is quality (or is compatible with your style of play).
Aye, I agree with you 100% I myself have my own little group and they know I am the type that likes to chill tkae my time and small talk a lot while playing so the type of player that likes to play get the game done short and sweet doesn't ususaly like to play with me.
As far as tournament is concerned that only tournament of 40K I've been to are Deep space golden marines as like I stated above I like to take my time and relax so tournaments are not my thing.
Anyways back to what you said Chimera I give you a gigantic +1.
