Even if the fault was entirely on him, it's besides the point. Pulling a "look at the guild tag" as their only response is incredibly silly and tacky. If you want to be respected, act respectfully towards others, don't demand it because your guild tag is well known.

And they did in fact do what he asked, and everything went fine after that. I can also say that there is only so much threat and so many taunts a tank has in a large group of mobs. If dps are just letting 5 weak mobs fire away while trying to hold the strongs and elites, they will eventually turn on the healer. DPS can practically 1-2 shot them, they should always die first.
I'm not denying that the look at our guild bit is stupid and no it's not entirely his fault, it just sounds like his response to the dps tunnel visioning the strongest mob was to also tunnel vision the strongest mob, in that situation you should be focusing on making sure the adds don't switch off you to the healer. Worst case scenario you lose aggro on the elite but as you mentioned they generally don't do a great deal of damage and for most groups you should be able to keep your taunt free for when this happens. If he's inexperienced as a tank fair enough, it just might be something he'd like to bare in mind if it happens again.
