I've spent the last year learning Drupal from the deep-end and being beraded for not doing things "the Drupal way". Along the way I got to work with some Drupal 'purists', who couldn't write a custom module to save their lives, but can build some pretty sophisticated, even database-driven, UIs without writing a line of code. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. The thing is everyone I talk to is all about "the Drupal way", but having learned Drupal from the inside out, I know that for every one thing Drupal excels at there's half a dozen things that are either beyond inefficient I mean way beyond), don't work, or require some kind of programming to do well. So why is there this stigma against "progammatic Drupal" development.
I can hack the hell out of Drupal AND I'M PROUD OF IT!
