This has everything to do with the fact that Blizz saw fit to give everyone a 'free' tankable class -- the DK. There is nothing equivalent for healers, for example. And while DKs CAN DPS, my experience shows that the VAST majority of the DKs opt to be tanks. So this grief for tanks is understandable, and will likely continue for quite awhile.

This may be only on my server, but we actually have VERY few DK tanks, especially at the higher levels on my server. Of the two top guilds one of them doesn't even have a single DK tank, the other just has one. They seem to definitely be less popular than Warriors and Paladins right now as tanks by far, but it's hard to really find out one way or another. I suspect though that they're fairly easy to find when doing heroics, but much fewer are actually around even doing normal 25 man content.
