Aren’t all communists tankies now?

No, not really. Some people try to make it seem like that, especially those with a vested interest in blurring the lines between different forms of communism, but it's in our interest to defend the distinction. In my view, a tankie is even worse than a Marxist-Leninist; they're a Marxist-Leninist who defends every decision of the Soviet Union, every action of Stalin, etc., thus being more extreme and dogmatic than members of the actual leadership of the USSR.

Nah ancoms and leftcoms are fine. Just a little idealistic (ancoms) and elitist (leftcoms).
