I don't think whether Moonkins can tank or not matters. I'm sure they can. Lots of classes CAN offtank. What matters is whether it adds utility or chaos. A real tank's job is not simply to be the one attacked. It is to control the flow of a fight. He/She sets the kill order, determines the positioning, sets the pace and determines cc priorities. That's not an ego thing, its why you brought the tank.Now if a tank is incapable of doing all that, then I can certainly appreciate the rest of the group using whatever tools they have to steer away from a wipe and towards success. If your tank IS capable, however, then adding any element of chaos is bush league. You're making everyone else's job harder because you have some weird ego issue about proving you can handle having aggro from a mob. No one cares or is impressed. They will be impressed when you make a savvy move to save a healer from aggro, or bring a mob back under the tank's control. If you're just peeling mobs off because you're too lazy to find the right target, good players will just see you as lazy.
