Stabilization is just a tool, just like many other things.  In many instances, that tool can be tremendously useful - particularly when a tripod is unavailable or when you need a lower ISO.  I have also found that for me, stabilization is vastly more useful on wide angles then long lenses (where I am usually using a fast shutter speed anyway).

There are lots of tools that weren't around when I used film cameras - that doesn't mean that stabilization, focus peaking, framing via LCD, cards that take 1,000 shots rather than film that can just take 36 exposures, etc... aren't useful things to have now.
