dunno the situation at hand but the best tanks tend to stack there primary stat over endurance to a certain extent, acting like it's strange to see a jugg/guardian with str stim and str gear kind of makes me think you're dumb.

take some time to learn about how threat/agro gets generated then compare some 30k tank to a mid 20's that has stacked more primary and see how well they maintain threat on bosses against BiS dps'ers.

now if they have some silly stuff as secondary or tertiary that's a different story, and you may very well have gotten a simply bad tank /shrug, not saying your pug tank was good, just saying plenty of people prefer str/aim/wp stim over end
