If was advisable rather than mandatory I would be fine, I have given you the reasons why they are extremely iffy effectiveness.
What exactly is "mandatory"?
You come in my house, you take off your shoes. Don't wanna take off your shoes, fine, get fucking lost and I almost certainly will not invite you back.
Nothing except death and taxes are MANDATORY.
Your problem is that 1- you have latched onto a pack of lies and you hate the occasional glimpses of truth that keep peeking thru and 2- like a spoiled child, you cannot accept consequences for your choices.
