I don't know. I can play/deal with low skill/good attitudes, such as willingness to take advice. I can't deal with OMG LOOK AT MY DPS WHO CARES IF WE'RE WIPING LOL.
I'm typically a healer. A passive aggressive one. DPS that think that typically don't get any heals either.
In PuGs, I give half a crap less about what anyone in the group thinks so long as we finish it. We can't finish it, I make sure we finish it by dumping the weak links. If said weak link is a tank that doesn't know how to use defensive cds, giving him yet another one won't make a lick of difference.
We're not talking about guild runs or raids here. We're talking about the dungeon finder. That's what all you people keep missing. Those people bad enough to need it won't freaking use it anyways.
Actually, I'm quite aware that the OP was referring specifically to dungeon finder, but I fail to see how that fact should be excuse the OP's unwillingness to give it to the tank, if it would be necessary to defeat the boss, in favor of having more DPS for a fight that'd be a wipe if she doesn't give it to the tank anyway.
I'm not talking about a tank that's so bad that he doesn't know to use his class cooldowns anyway; I'm talking about a situation where the group's survival hinges on the tank having an extra cooldown.
I'm talking about who's the better team player, and who deserves the kick more-- the tank who's not skilled but is making a good-faith attempt at getting better and trying his best not to screw up, or the DPS who refuses to give the tank an extra defensive cooldown, even though the group keeps wiping and the cooldown may actually save the group?
I read once that you know a player has been playing since Vanilla by the fact that they take wipes in good stride. That could be why I'm so relaxed about it. Or maybe its because I realize that it's just a game, and allowing someone else enjoy the game as much as I do is worth the extra effort.
BTW, I'm not sure what the phrase "I give half a crap less" means.
