I would agree with you if there wasn't already a functionality that works perfectly fine to get rid of opinions you dislike.
I don't think anyone wants to force you to listen to our opinions. After all, you can just as easily scroll past any post with my name on it and ignore it. I don't mind if you don't want to read my posts.
But again, why should you dictate what others are allowed to read? It's already made very easy for anyone to filter posters they dislike, so why take it a step further and filter posters so that other people can't filter them themselves?
