Instead of stating why you hate someone or something about the art, you shouldn't care what other people are doing. Worry about you and how you make your magic happen. Don't let things like this keep you from practicing because you were busy reading bull**** articles by an author that can't be identified located somewhere in Utah. Threads like these lead to no-wheresville. I try to stay out of the politics in magic, because simply it's not worth it. I don't have the time to read about who's scamming who and why this person hates that one. It's just an endless argument back and forth because both parties feel that they're right. So the amount of time you've read this thread and replied to, you've wasted time that you can never get back that could have been used to practice. Realize this now before your history repeats itself and those measly minutes turn into hours. Slippery slope? Maybe. The only thing to do is just let it be.
