We agree on that point. And there is plenty of evidence (or was when more people were active here) that it is true. Some even posted that they were putting certain (obviously civil) people on IGNORE, and some even encouraged others to IGNORE the same folks.
On the other hand, I said "civil folks that have a different opinion about MVIS", and I suspect we don't agree about who are those one/few uncivil abusive folks that it is understandable that some people would put on IGNORE (and it is hard to argue on balance, that they shouldn't IGNORE those one/few). Hint......if any on-topic comments are far outweighed by their abusive comments (or abusive use of IV to attack reddit mods/posters), they might be part of one/few.
