I don't agree with you. After all, what you're saying is to use the features
of a language even if it's not a good idea. What if I don't like templates?
Or exception handlers? Heck, what if I don't like using // as a comment
delimiter? Does that make me a bad C++ programmer? In some cases, even though
the "textbook" says to use a template, the result could be such horrid code
that you spend more time debugging it than writing it.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
