It doesn't bother me at all. I consider it a tribute to the medium of film. It must seem to these folks that it makes their work seem more classically photographic, or maybe just more serious. Anyway, film photographers for years have used darkroom techniques and manipulations to present their work in a certain way. So I'm kind of live and let live about it. I can't go around telling artists how they should make art.
Anyway, it's better than HDR color work, which hurts my eyes and I'm sure damages my brain.
