A third possible solution, and one we did with a tank that helped us out when we needed him most but had a lot of problems listed above.Move him to a dps role. We had kitted him out with a lot of good tanking gear so we made him bring it along to every raid but for the most part we just had him dps on fights and OT when the pull required just one extra tank. It seemed like he was a happier player in this role as well because we weren't yelling at him as much for silly mistakes. Of course without any aggro dumps his trips to dreamland may be pretty costly but in general in most fights all that ends up happening is the boss turns around, punches the guy in the forehead, and goes back to the tank. Eventually he learns that if he doesn't want huge repair bills he'll watch his aggro.
