Your OP lacked this sort of sensible nuance. So NO!!!

I hope on trinity based FPs GF will be made properly and you will got only role you have role by most points spent in trees not just due AC.

I can actually understand this, I'm getting close now to full BIS 78 (Hilt, One relic and an armoring off) and I dps in flashpoints a lot, sometimes I literally don't notice a tanks HP go down because I'm DPS'ing.

Now, I've never had a tank die on me in a FP that wasn't due to being knocked off an edge, or drawing 7 champs in Athiss and not keeping them all on him, but the danger of a tank dieing is there.

My sorc healer is is almost BiS. Flashpoints are ridiculously easy to heal at this point. I press two buttons and you're healed for 14k. So no. I will throw DoTs and lightning all I want, thanks.

as an operative, I like to collect more TAs with the shiv attack, so, no.

I like to throw in some tanking too. So far I've tanked a few FP HM' bosses and level 50 ops bosses on scoundrel. Last boss I tanked on scoundrel was Soa, the idiot pugs fell down and died so I took it upon me to put the boss under the falling "thingis" during the last phase. I healed the few survivors while doing it because I had to keep the aggro up.

If everyone is in no danger of dying arbitrarily, I see no reason to stand around and do nothing. I've got a blaster; I'm gonna use it.

Flip-side of the coin, ran the new kuat fp yesterday on a dps lowbie toon I'm messing with and got grouped with two healers. 4 deaths later I never got a single heal from either of them, I was never even targeted in fact (since I see group member's ToT). Maybe that was just a misqueue for roles or something but, yeah when I play any of my healers I dps as much as I can and pull the plug immediately when it's time to do my real job.

I've done plenty of flashpoints where I spent more time DPS's as a healer simply because everyone was so overgeared for the content that very little healing was needed. It's been a common thing for years, going back to other MMOs. So don't make a blanket statement. When healing is really challenging, I wouldn't waste my resources and global cooldowns. Most likely, as people said, you're either dealing with DPS queued as a healer, or just really new and uneducated players that aren't really aware of what they're supposed to do. Or maybe they queued as a healer by mistake.

I am WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY overgeared for all the 55HM FPs. If there is a pause in healing needed I will DPS a little. Deal with it. I guarantee you're not going to kick me and wait upwards of 15-30 minutes to get a backfill, competent healer.
I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are male, or female, black, or white, gay, or straight, religious, or non-religious, old or young. I care about 3 things. Can you tank properly? Can you DPS properly? Can you heal properly?
