Do you always have to remove the "silverskin" from pork ribs before you cook them? Why?

The silver skin is removed by some people and not by others. I remove it for two reasons; first to get the dry rub I use use on to the meat (silverskin is like plastic ), second it is tough to chew.

It gets removed before cooking because it does not breakdown. It is like gristle, and you can’t chew it into submission.
