I seem to remember people claiming the same things back when AF was introduced...

Move along people, nothing to see here but yet another person afflicted with change-resistance-syndrome.

Like it or not, photography is now an activity that is conducted at the camera and the computer. WB is one of the things you can choose to do at either time. One is not inherently more "good photographic technique" than the other.

Learn to get it correct or nearly correct in the camera. If you'd like to alter the WB later (to, say, add warmth), go right ahead.
