When you choose a tank, please tank

I just had a horrible game where the two tanks, malphite and rammus, decided they didn't want to tank but they wanted to be carries with tank builds. This is how a normal team fight would go.

Tanks start fight.
I (kog) take away a ton of the health from various enemies.
Their carries would show up behind me and begin attacking.
The rest of their team would leave.
My tanks would follow, sometimes crossing the whole map and land a kill or two.
I die because tanks didn't ever try to help.
The carry that killed me proceeded to take a tower or two as my tanks were still chasing the rest of their team.

So please, when you choose a tank, tank. Protect your carries or you'll lose, even if you get a ton of kills.

If I go in first and die how will I get any kills?

Tanks K/D is important you know, assists are for support

You people say that but all you noobs do is run in and expect the tank to catch up.. QQ more, it's your fault for dying, not the tank's.

Well technically Malphite isn't supposed to be a tank.
