It's not purposely gimping your team to disagree with them. It's disagreeing with them.
How many times have you seen people go mid eve and some moron on your team who has no idea what they are talking about says "LOL EVE CAN'T MID!" Should the people who started that fotm be banned? No.
I used Malz as an example because everyone is talking about him. -.- My point still stands. Subpar supports, regardless of what champion it is.
And yes, it is purposely gimping your team. Part of the summoner's code is that you're to keep things civil, which is hard when you're choosing a champion that's subpar in that role because you want too, and you don't want to play what the team needs. It's also against the summoner's code to play whatever you like at other people's expense, which is what you're doing by picking subpar supports.
If you're causing a rift in the team by picking said champion, you're technically breaking the summoner's code.
And I'm not saying people should be banned for it. I don't think anyone should be banned for their champion picks, as agitated as I would get if someone decided to pick something that's not seen very often in that role. Just that it is immature to disregard everyone else's feeling because "I don't like the role, so I'll just do what I want with it". Which is the way you're coming off.
