Well, I've explained my objections to it. Don't get me wrong, I am one of those
people - I have written a program that uses all of the tricks I criticize. But
my objection to it is that a lot of these tricks are not beneficial for research
in related fields - even close ones like playing other games, and thus it would
be nice to change philosophies. It would also be much more elegant to be able to
have computers learn the tricks themselves, don't you think?
