"straight out the camera, no PP" is a keyphrase indicative of a newbie.

Sometimes.  But it also describes a philosophy, often but by no means invariably adopted by people who learned on film, where the purity of the medium is held in high regard.  Or it can be used by someone who's the opposite of a newbie - someone with enough experience to be able to tune their camera to the output they want.

As with any philosophy, some people get messianic about it; but the strident few don't make the general idea wrong.

It's akin to saying "I drove to the store all by myself!". People who have been driving for 50 years don't say that.

I think a better analogy is the difference between driving (anywhere) in a car with a manual or automatic gearbox.  I knew someone who used a manual box for 50 years, changed to automatic because he was getting on in years and wanted to simplify things - and told people.
