We all need to be tolerant, i never muted anyone ever and prolly never will, that is because no one can hurt my feelings or make me change my mind about things. I have a personality and am happy with it. Hope the ones that like me are more than the ones that do not.
Having said that, i believe this comes from our childhood when mama used to say "do not play with those kids who do not love you and cherish and admire you the way mommy does" and that is why some people want to ignore others, because the lack character and self respect to confront the situation and talk in a civil way to the person and work it out. They would rather disperse poison and bad mouth the people.
Real man work their differences out, thru tolerance, patience and understanding.
In my book anyone who NEEDS to mute someone is a coward, hiding under mommy's skirt.
