As an afflock, my 'problem' is healers who heal me whenever I lifetap, even though I tell them that they don't have to - with haunt, siphon life and fel armor there's really no need to ever heal me, except in AoE situations. That said, I don't think tapping to 10% during a pull is smart.

On boss fights I put a light well down right in front of our lock. He loves me for it and I don't have to worry about his health from tapping.

EXACTLY! warlocks can heal themselves and are in no danger at all as long as the tank tanks and the lock stays away. but life taping to 10% during a pull? yeah thats kinda risky.

But as a healer it just comes as an instinct to throw a heal on someone with low health. I don't even think of who I heal, I just heal and think afterwards. The only way to get me not to heal a warlock who lifetaps is to remove his health bar, I can't not-heal him when I see his health go low. Being a druid I don't mind this as a hot can just heal trough it, but as another healer I can see it being annoying with the lifetaps.

I usually try to lifetap between pulls. Most of the healers I've run with don't seem to mind too much, cause I usually get just a HoT. Mana regen during the middle of fights is the reason I haven't specced out of Dark Pact yet. Tapping during the middle of a pull (especially down to 10%) is a problem, I think. The person probably just needs to start drinking more between fights or whatnot. It's always funny doing it during a raid scenario though. I tap ONCE, and suddenly I have a Wild Growth, Prayer of Mending, Renew, Chain Heal, and a Bubble on me. I once Pugged with a priest who YELLED at me in whispers to stop lifetapping. Since Affliction doesn't burn off as much mana as Destro, I usually only have to tap once to top off after small pulls, and this priest was absolutely livid about it. I asked him if he WANTED me to kill things. @Dark - OMG I love the Lightwell.
