Taming the monster they helped create (Destiny)

I've met decent randoms. I kinda miss the old days when people had their mikes on. I made a few friends just by being polite and complimentary.

On the other hand, it was a choice to enter a competitive game. Given how Destiny strongly encourages you to play with strangers (through means that we don't fully understand yet), I think I get the decision to leave voice chat off by default.

I've been thinking about what my first playthrough will be like, and I'm thinking I'm going to keep an open mind, and perhaps join other players, even though that isn't how I've traditionally liked to play Bungie games the first time. At that point I really care about immersion. I suspect Bungie is trying to balance two things, the immersion and the spontaneity of co-op, without the dubstep, abusive language, and whatever else you might get with live mikes.
