If I may make a counter argument. I agree that tanks get a bad rep for the stupidest of crap; however, I've also known tanks who were absolute gods at holding aggro and staying alive. Tanks who did not need healing from the healer even on heroic fights. Tanks who have solo'ed a solid 40% of a bosses health. These tanks weren't even using the high end raid gear. Tanks who have challenged the DPS to pull aggro and won every time. Tanks who enter a dungeon prepared and actually go after checking the healer has mana. I've even known one to accomplish this all in the same run.So while **** does happen and peoples expectations are skewed. I have seen where these expectations can come from. Your opinions are valid but please remember just because there are a lot of jerky DPS it doesn't mean every tank is bringing their "A" game.That being said I hope the DPS get some kind of reward from this as well.
