Nope.

Learn what dielectric means.

I didn't put any when I replaced my spark plugs. The argument I hear against anti-seize is that it can act like a lubricant so when you torque your plugs you might over torque it.

im aware of what it means and why people use it. i just want to know peoples views and experiences with it. In case you forgot what it is, here is the meaning.
di·e·lec·tric - a medium or substance that transmits electric force without conduction; an insulator (ive also heard it helps prevent corrosion)

anti-seize is different. im not sure if your comment was comparing the two, or that people get the use for each mixed up. Dielectric grease is to prevent corrosion while also providing electrical connection. i just want to know does it work in your favor or is it just something that doesn't do what its meant for or causes more issues than helping do what its meant
