I'm not one of them. In my opinion the really radical of these fanatics should be relegated to using an old plate camera on a 100lb tripod with a lens cap for a shutter. Personally I'll take all the help I can get from the camera that allows me to concentrate more on the subject and what I want from it.
Don't get me wrong. There are times when taking the time to set the camera's exposure and aperature and then concentrate solely on the focus is the way; say when you have studio lights or well balanced flash and a fairly static subject. Or when you have consistent daylight - light overcast and few shadows - then it makes sense to preset.
