Exactly. I was on board with the "just stop the ridiculous abstraction, let's get the job done" until the 50% / 99% point. It isn't one or the other. If we insist on a dichotomy, a better one might be idiots vs. "experienced, talented developers who know what they're doing". I too have seen the projects with walls full of UML diagrams and not a line of code written. The self-perpetuating thing about these projects is that the developers who are itching to get the job done eventually give up and go somewhere else, leaving the UML-ites (or pick the latest fad) to keep it up until the project dies.

Some people claim that the UNIX learning curve is steep, but at least you only have to climb it once.
