Indeed - and shunning is a social thing, not a rule thing.
There are far worse penalties incurred from your peers for social infractions than anything we can think to do. Not being able to play a banned account is one thing - not being able to play an active account because no one will associate or group with you is quite another.
Not breaking rules does NOT equal - ok. It's just not rulebreaking. Social conventions are within every players grasp and another thing entirely.
Except that people who break social rules don't have to socialize with people on separate servers, lol. That threat might have worked 5 years ago when LFG/LFR didn't exist, nowadays? Not so much.
If you place the person on ignore then you will no longer group with them ever again in the LFG/LFR. If enough people have that person on ignore, they will find that the queue times are very long. I don't see how the LFR or LFG effects any social consequence.
