I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Does Pathfinder significantly fix known problems with the Monk class?
"What changes to the monk did Pathfinder make from 3.5," a factually answerable question, or "Did these specific things that I/others think are 'wrong' with the monk get fixed in Pathfinder" (where #2 is worse than #1 but is at least on topic). "Did everything anyone thinks is wrong get fixed" is just discussion/argument chow.

I'd like to see this question expanded to specifically note what it's asking. What do you consider the problems you want to see fixed?

-1 it may not fix it "as much as you want" but the monk does have significant improvements from 3.5.

comment Abuse: Is it fair if it's in-game?
@KRyan yeah, but from reading about their group I'm not sure that "a magic device stopping them from killing each other and/or important NPCs" may not be merited on some level.

+1 this. Clearly this gaming group is not at the "let's define a social contract and define the limits of Rule 0" level, they are at the Looney Tunes level. Suggest you try to get you/your GM to start more where some of the "how to play an RPG" questions on this site start - watch some Actual Play videos, etc.

comment “Retiring” a maxed-out party
Oh sure, it doesn't have to peter out, but usually you can wrap up the story and be done with natural closure.
