That's all well and good, but the argument being used is a generalization which at best is wrong. I don't care what you use, but FUD doesn't help anything.


I disagree and what I said is not FUD.

If we took the time to *not* generalize, then we would be up to our collective butts in evaluations of everything, while getting nothing accomplished.

Generalization is a way to navigate the massive amounts of data we are bombarded with each day. Do I want to spend/waste time evaluating all templates to the nth degree? I think not.

Instead, I research ideas and see if they meet with my way of doing things. If they do, then I incorporate them into my method -- if not, then I pass.

I have changed my methods many times to accommodate new technologies and new ways of doing things, but that does not mean that I always incorporate everything that comes along. Templates are one of those things that do not fit in my way of doing things and I do not need to investigate all template systems to arrive at that conclusion. As such, there is nothing wrong with my evaluation method for it works for me.
