Once again, I think we're talking past each other. I was replying to
(and quoted from) the provided sample rejection letter. First I
wanted to point out that I had already rejected the premise earlier
on this thread even though it was suggested that no rejection had
yet been provided. Second, the sample letter seemed to indicate what
I believe to be a fundamental misunderstanding among those pushing
this issue: the repeated attempts I've seen so far to paint a
disinterest in participating in wechat interactions as mere
"personal preference," and the idea that those who hold this
"preference" are somehow weak or afraid of the people they'll
encounter there.

For me, it borders on insulting. I (and I believe many others) have
strong ideological opposition to participating in these forums, not
mere personal preferences.
