Fresh tank seeking advice
This weekend I sm going to offically enter into low level tanking for the first time, we're talking RFC and DM low. Now I've done the other roles DPS and Healing before which has its own challenges, but i've always personally felt tanking is the more challenging and taxing of roles in WoW due in a big part to PUGs. Before I throw myself into the lion's den, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what I can expect starting out, and also what do you do when your put in charge of a uncooropitive group without just disbanding or kicking players.

THIS. Tanking is challenging and often thankless work. The best advice I can give is tank at your own pace. You set the tempo for your group in most cases. Don't be afraid to pull small and tank so that it's comfortable for you.

Learn your class from the tanks who have gone before. Maintankadin, Tankspot and Elitist Jerks have outstanding advice.
Finally learn which of your abilities generate the most threat, and always keep your taunts handy.
Tank hard, have fun, get loot.
