Why is it impolite to ignore people? And, I think it can show
a great deal of taste in whose opinions you do not listen to. I
reserve the right to not listen to whomsoever I chose (not to listen
to). People may have a right to speech, but they certainly do not
have right to my time.

Not everyones. Not all opinions are equal, despite whatever
post modernists say. I certainly put more value on some peoples
opinions than others -- and I have no problem taking technical
measures to ensure that my time is not wasted byu opinions I find

Care to tell me why wasting my time would be a good thing? Or
why wasting other peoples time (since there would come a time where I
would get irritated enough to comment on that opinion, and the
resulting flame war would get us nowhere).

Frankly, if ignoring inane opinions and noisy people and not
flaming them to crisp is bad behaviour, I have not yet achieved a
state of nirvana.
