Why are people using rare occurrences to suggest the entire opposite?

I don't know that it is rare.  I think maybe more like uncommon, maybe 5% of the photos could be negatively impacted?  Maybe more or less with some systems.

Oh and if you disagree with me then you're not a professional photographer and haven't been doing it for many years like myself.....

I am tending the other way.  OIS and IBIS are tripod replacements, nothing more.  A tripod is always better unless you don't have one with you (or aren't allowed to have one with you). The more photography I do the more I have learned to not use OIS and IBIS as usually a faster shutter speed and higher ISO is what is needed instead.

The only time I rely on OIS/IBIS is shooting weddings where I am stuck using a flash with a sync speed of 1/180 or 1/250 at most and shooting with a 50-150mm f/2.8 lens (crop) or 70-200mm f/2.8 lens for full frame.  So the flash sync is forcing me to use too slow of a shutter speed, and my flash is balancing ambient so there is motion blur from the lens if it isn't stabilized.
