Question Asked: Why are there no reports of grinding in 2nd/3rd gear?

Everyone I've ever met who owns an 8th gen Civic Si has experienced grinding in 2nd, 3rd or both 2nd and 3rd gears at high RPMs. Why are there no reports of this issue on this website, and why does Honda do nothing to fix it? Many of us have gone to dealerships, including myself, and usually get the standard answer: the problem could not be duplicated, therefore cannot be fixed. How can you blow off an issue like this and just say that every one who has the issue just fails to push the clutch pedal in all the way? There is no possible way that all of these drivers, across all ages/education levels/races/etc. just happen to forget to push the clutch pedal in all the way only on two specific gears on one specific car model.
