I usually state outright in the instance chat "you pull it, you tank it, I'll only taunt off the healer from healing aggro" along with a demo usually gets them to stop, if not I ask the group to votekick them.

I normally just deal with it till the first boss is dead, tell them to enjoy their wait and leave.

maybe Euro LFR is worse that US. Or maybe you expect too much, or maybe it's the time of day you play. Over here, they only truly bad LFRs are Sat-Sun from what I have seen. Weekdays it's moreso raiders that want to get in and out.

I don't really see many awful LFRs (EU here). The fights are too easy. LFR is actually my preferred way of getting Valor (I usually run all wings except first half of HoF, even though I don't need loot from them).

Euro LFR means half of the raid is hanging between 20 and 40k DPS with 470 ilvl, and half of the tanks hardly bothers reading about tactics (taunts, stuff to avoid).
I've even had one tank (that didn't bother to reply when asked if he knew how to tank will) who drag the boss through the raid during a Devastating Combo.

I've just gotten used to tanks in LFR not bothering to use the crystals on Feng; the earthquake doesn't kill me even if I stand in it on LFR. That's the only fight where it really stands out, though - it's been a long time since I've encountered tanks who try to taunt Emperor's Strength on top of the bosses during Will, for example.

Aside from my absolutely retarded 24 min Tsulong "kill" the first day Terrace was released LFR hasn't been all that bad. That's not to say there aren't a few idiots like the guy who did nothing but complain about loot while wearing seven LFR pieces but it's nowhere near the level of trolling and dumb shit like there was in DS.

Talking about the feng crystals, we actually had a raider go all "Wow! Its the first time in weeks I've seen both tanks knowing how to use the crystals" when I stunned Feng with the Copy-Fist.

I like using the copy crystal, but only if I know the other tank (my guild tends to do LFR as a group) -- if I don't know who the other tank is, I get the barrier crystal, just to be safe.

In LFR, if I can trust the other tank (yeah, RIGHT) I'd rather copy damage abilites. He'll be using the shield every Quake, Draw and Velocity, so I can focus on making the fight shorter.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Oh, wait, there is one other thing tanks do in LFR that annoys me. They quite often tank Lei Shi on top of the adds during her bubble phase, making it impossible for melee to get in close enough to kill one without taking loads of stacks of the tank DoT.

Speaking of Lei Shi, I hit a new record over the weekend: 42 stacks of Spray before I fell over.

I'm getting kind of used to not having her being taunted off me now...

Saw a couple of funny, ironic tweets using the "#whygunsarebetterthanliberals" hashtag. Then I looked at the rest of the feed, and realised it was being used seriously. /facepalm

EU LFR seems to be dire over the weekend and Tuesday evening. Late Tuesday evening can get really frustrating with all the waiting around and replacing players. Takes forever.

No so much a frustration as a sadness. Had a DPS leave the raid group today (not surpirsing, and due to too few raids getting going and 50% of the supposed group not bothering to sign up or off or anything). Also means we are probably dissolving before months end unless recruitment picks up - the leaving dps is our top dps on every fight since I switched to tanking (battled with me for it before that), so Elegon is probably a no go now (seeing as we hit the enrage with him in thursday) and Garalon likewise.
Sad to foresee the raidgroup dissolving - hoping we can reboot it in a tiers worth of time, like what happened in wrath.

I wouldn't know, consider there's no free gearing in MoP: in order to access new raids, you'll still have to farm T14 raids.
