Why are u not allowed to flame, if there is an easy way to /mute you?

In many of my last games their was a lot of diskusion between players -> Player 1: Flame, Player 2 reacts with: Hey stfu or pls be quiet or i will report you. I dont get why people who easily get tilted by player do not /mute then but instead resort to threatening them with acc bans.
