When you demanded the group kick the fail!tank after the first boss, I actually laughed.
No, really. There was snickering.
My amusement may have had something to do with the fact that the other two DPS in that group were, in fact, my guildmates. I somehow doubt they were going to do as you demanded.
Also, yelling, "GOGOGOGOGOGO," just before a boss when the healer is at less than half mana? Not endearing you to anyone. In fact, "GOGOGO" usually translates to, "Let's have a dance party around the campfire for ten minutes." My Horde peeps are totally all about the fire dancing.
In addition, it's usually Not A Good Idea to pull for the tank. Seriously. I was watching the healer's mana, proximity to the group (they lagged behind a lot), and my own CDs. I kinda like to make sure everyone's ready before making a pull. I was very sad that that one caster mob you pulled for yourself didn't kill you. (Had to scold my guildies for attacking it for you...they're still in training.)
Hope you enjoyed the rest of the run after we three guildmates dropped group.

Dear Healer from the same run,
I know I'm not an amazing Blood DK. I know I made some mistakes (mostly due to not having tanked much on that toon in recent months). But my gear is "good enough" for basic Heroics. Good enough, that is, provided the Healer actually Heals me. You only seemed interested in healing me when I was about to die. In fact, my two guildies were tossing heals on me (gotta love hybrid classes) so I wouldn't keel over. They shouldn't have to do that.
I may not be an outstanding Tank, but when I'm blowing my "oh shit" CDs on trash mobs there is something Seriously Wrong.
Perhaps you should either go back to Normals, or get your thumb out of your tail and pay attention.
After seeing how much healing you weren't doing, combined with the above Shaman's bad attitude, my guildies and I decided to just leave group. Hope your next tank was seriously OP, 'cause there's no way you were finishing that run with anything less geared.

Dear Horde Guildies,
Rule One: If I'm Not Tanking It, DON'T HIT IT!
Seriously. There's a reason I don't rush in to rescue those who pull for me. On my DK, I'm a right cold-hearted b****** (slightly more forgiving on my Bear). I cackle with sadistic glee as I watch health bars bleed out for those who dared hit that mob before me. You're ruining my fun by pulling aggro off the not-a-tank, thus making me have to come save your tailfeathers. Focus Me. Target My Target. Have Show Target Of Target active. If it ain't hitting ME, you shouldn't be hitting IT. (Unless it's on the Healer, but I'll pick those up myself.)
Rule Two: No Knockbacks!
This means Thunderstorm, Typhoon, and anything else that sends the mobs scattering to the four corners of the room. I don't like that. Especially with caster mobs in the mix. Do you know how hard it is to re-position casters who are now on totally opposite sides of the room? WHY DO YOU KNOCKBACK MY MOBS?! One of you in particular seems to have a love affair with Thunderstorm. *glares at the Shaman* In case Rule One didn't clue you in, I WILL let things eat you! I have Druids and Shaman myself. I love my knockbacks for questing. I do. But in a Dungeon, when the tank (me) has the mobs nicely arranged in a single group for AoE slaughter...that is Not the place to Thunderstorm. So remember: No Knockbacks.
I will go Frost for randoms if you continue to break The Rules. You don't want that wait time of three DPS. Behave, or I shall smack your noses with a rolled up newspaper! Or show you naked pictures of Varian Wrynn. (In fact, that might have more impact since most of you seem to hate him. Hrm...urge to draw, rising.)
- That Blood DK who keeps tanking for you lot
Self, remember to not tank when tired. You make far more mistakes when your brain isn't fully charged. All the above would still have been what they were, but at least your reaction times would've been faster. We all know you made mistakes last night that you're too experienced to have been making. Next time you feel drowsy and someone asks you to tank, say No. Go Frost instead...Frost is fun.
Dear Baradin Fox,
