A couple of weeks ago, and before my dps spec was very well-geared, I was in a random heroic Lost City of the Tol'vir. The run was going great for the first two bosses, although the tank was pulling a little fast and the healer was obviously not used to it. Eventually, the healer asked for a second to drink and regen mana, and the tank, without saying a word, ignored him and continued, very nearly dying. I asked him to listen to the healer and to slow down, but he ignored my request and kept going. He and the hunter, from his guild, then started ganging up on the healer, and when I accused him of abusing the healer and being a jerk, he and the hunter turned on me. Now, my dps spec was not as geared as it is now, and so I had a few pieces of low item level armor, and they immediately made fun of this. I defended myself, and we started arguing. Eventually it came up that the tank and hunter had defeated Ragnaros, and as such, he should know better and was a good tank. I disagreed with him, and said that while he had defeated Ragnaros, he was not being a good tank, ignoring the healer's requests and abusing the healer. We finished the rest of the dungeon in silence, and after the hunter and tank had left, I apologized to the healer for all that had happened, and promptly put the tank and hunter on my ignore list. I usually tank, so I've never really understood the whole idea of self-entitled tanks, as I always feel bad whenever I ask another player to do something. Anyways, I'd like to apologize to all the healers that have to deal with jerks like this, and tell them that there are some tanks that will respect you. :)

Reading through this, it sounds a lot more disorganized than it did in my head...
