These kind of missives have a tendency to devolve to flame bait. TDD goes through the same cyclical exchanges. 
And this continues despite the 'TDD - Thats not what we meant'  interventions.
As I get older I have an increasing desire to move on and focus on exchanges that help me improve on the disciplines I've chosen to believe will help me produce better software.

IMO someone like Sandi Metz has done a far better job of explaining the nuances and reasoning behind choices.
I understand she's making a rare London appearance soon presenting an opportunity for a dialogue.
