Just an FYI! Each party member grants the entire group 50% quantity find. 6 players = 300%.... Notice on bosses, so many items drop compared to solo. 

 

I'm not 100% sure, but it also feels like you get bonus XP.

You most certianly can ninja loot in Path of Exile. As someone who considers it poor manners to loot while there are still things to fight having items be free for all after 1 second just encourages ninja looting and is in poor taste.

So maybe talk about it in the party? I always wait until it is obvious that the person doesn't want the item, nad only then pick it up. Maybe tell your party members to do the same? If they won't agree just leave the party and find some more like-minded folks.

The first time you see someone pick up an orange unique item faster than you it will kill any type of public party system. The FFA loot system just encourages ninja looting and ninja looting does not encourage joining public groups. This is not something the players should have to make a work-around for with selective grouping or soloing just so you get items.

Sounds great but I'm a greedy antisocial bastard so I'll stick with my solo dungeon grind where I get to keep all the shiny cool stuff.

If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

You can create multiple accounts and group with yourself, get mad loot and keep it all. How do you think item farmer s have so many orange items already? That's what they're doing.

300% / 6 = 50%

 

So partys get 1/2 the amount of loot per person.   Monsters have a 300% boost in HP.  

 

There is no reason to party unless you have a close group of friends.   I don't know how else to explain this.
