I am a good tipper, I tip 20-25% most of the time. However, when a restaurant charges an automatic tip, the wait staff only gets what that tip is. I also try to not return to the restaurant.

Although I agree with you here in general, I do differ on large groups.

The gratuity for large groups is a required policy IMO. I might now be a problem when I am controlling the action, but I have seen too may injustices here and you are talking about taking a huge chunk of a waiter/waitresses day's income from one jerk
