    Since most of us would disagree that being boring is an agreeable trait, and traits that are not agreeable are usually considered immoral, of course it is not a grave act, but nonetheless do you still consider it ethically wrong?

    There is of course a degree of education and relativity, as with the case of classical music, many find that boring whereas i'd simply dismiss it as ignorance, however in some cases there is a genuine ground to call something boring.

    Just because something is disagreeable, doesn't mean it's immoral.

    It is disagreeable to burn my money rather than give it to charity, but that isn't immoral.

    No. It makes me a bit of a ****, but it isn't immoral. It's my property to dispose of as I see fit.

    Whether or not you're breaching a duty you owe or infringing on a right someone else has.

    You don't owe a duty to anyone to be interesting.

    I wouldn't call it immoral but I wouldn't exactly call it a positive trait unless you were like an introvert.

    It's illegal to destroy coins, and to deface banknotes. It isn't illegal to destroy banknotes.
