Why is it not a loss forgiven when you have a dc in ranked?

I would really love Riot to give me a reasonable response to this.

Punish the person who dc'd but the other players should be forgiven. Silly.

Here's what would happen if you get a loss forgiven when you have a dc in ranked.

Blue team is losing. Everyone on blue will decide who the "weakest" player is on the team, and the other 4 people will start bullying and harassing that person to try and get them to leave just so they get a loss forgiven and don't lose their LP.

Basically, it would cause more fighting and harassment among players.

Duo queues taking turns D/Cing and they magically get half as many loses as they should.

And how exactly would you have that work for ranked 5s and 3s?

This is why they implemented the whole "if a champion isnt selected you are kicked out" instead of getting a random champ being selected. But IF riot had a d/c = loss prevented. People would d/c early game and you could potentially tell everyone on your team to not report you. Opposing team dont report unless you ask them to in most cases. And if you dont ask, this person is never reported. And you will get players who abuse this. Riot cant just create loopholes like that.
