I would argue the opposite-- I have tried every class (some only to level 25 or so, enough to get an idea of the flavor and decide I didn't care for it) and I like several classes enough that I plan to take them to 85 in time. The experience has made me a better player overall, because I picked up a better general understanding of how the overall game works and a sense of perspective. I'd be a much worse DPS if I hadn't tanked and healed first-- among other things, I seem to have a much better sense of utility than most DPSers in pugs; I'll pop out of shadow form to heal if the healer's down when DPSing on my priest, or use Army properly to take threat and soak damage if the tank (or healer, if tanking) dies and I have no brez available on my DK. I'd be a worse tank if I hadn't been a healer first; I'm very aware of LoS and mana, and I won't pull if I have any doubt about the healer needing to drink. And tanking and DPSing helped my situational awareness while healing, among other things. A lot of things do carry over from class to class, and from role to role. My opinion is that the best way to get good at the game is to try out every role, even if it's only from 1-60 or even 1-40. It's enough to get a solid idea of how most classes play. Also, and using the term 'huntard' makes you look like a douchebag. There are bad players in every class. (Go ahead, ask me about the warrior in agi leather and a spellpower weapon I ran into in a heroic the other day.)
