Seeing people kill the named spider I just killed could potentially bother me, but I haven't experienced that yet in my time with LOTRO.
An example of something funny. I did a quest to rescue someone's pet raven. I did the quest and saved the raven. A few minutes letter I went back to that location in order to grind some reputation items, and the raven was back in the spot I had just saved it from.
You run across stuff like that a lot in the game, I'll admit. If that bothers you then I could see where you're coming from.
Like I said, I've still been impressed by the immersion level I've experienced with LOTRO. Let's say this, the developers have done a pretty good job of hiding the inconsistencies. And what they couldn't fully hide usually just doesn't bother me much. Your mileage may vary, of course.
