So, despite the fact that you can personally set it to where you don't need to see achievements/trophies, the fact that your friends can annoys you? Get over it, mate.
I'm trying make a broader point. Specifically, that opting out or having to ignore something isn't cost-free, and that in this context, you can't even truly opt-out - only ignore your own participation. I think these are valid arguments to not wanting platform-level achievement systems.
People who defend achievement schemes keep framing them as cost-free to people who don't want them and it's straight up bullshit. Make a better argument.
