Do you use Anti-seize on your sparkplugs when changing plugs?

Most (if not all) manufacturers nowadays advice against using any anti-seize due to the anti-seize will lower the conductivity between the spark plugs and head, and they said it could cause ignition issues, especially with modern cars with high compression engine. But then that's modern cars with modern engine technology.

There is legit risk of seizing the plug and the risk is too high to take, so I'd just dab a tiny bit of silver anti seize (emphasizing tiny bit).
And always use torque wrench or a well calibrated pair of hands when tightening.
