I'm reminded of a discussion I had when it comes to planes. I asked if someone knew if I could get a TSO'd or TSC'd muffler for it, and even in an environment where noise abatement is important, apart from the blank stares, I was asked why on earth I would want to muffle the sound from it (most GA planes are straight-throughs - especially cubs, in my experience)
Apart from not being fun to listen to it myself, I couldn't, and still can't, fathom why people would purposely annoy other people who can then in turn legislate against the hobby, let alone outright ban it in certain places. Talk about short-sighted selfish behaviour and being oblivious to the bigger picture.
