I'll Ignore You If You Promise Not To Kill Us

According to this post
, electronics rule violations on planes won't really put my safety in jeopardy (by bringing the plan down or anything) but am I supposed to ignore blatant electronics usage during take-off and landing?

I've begun to see an uptick in people around me using their electronics for expressly prohibited activities like text messaging and internet browsing. Example: one guy last week was txting while we were barreling down the runway trying to take off. The offenders usually know what they're doing because they strategically hide their devices when flight attendants are near.
I generally ignore these people and can't imagine a confrontation asking them to stop what they're doing.
Question: Should I continue to ignore and leave it to karma? There's no safety issue here, right?
