Does not mean he or she used it in p-mode, it was just to be polite to you ;)

First, I don't believe many people shoot in fully manual mode, not even pros.

I do, most of the time. I lent my camera to a pro, it came back set in P mode.

So you are glutton for punishment, it is very unusual these days when handling the cameras - why? If blur is important to you you set the aperture, camera will adjust the shutter speed. If you are after stopping the motion, set the shutter speed, and the camera will do the rest with the aperture. All there is to it. Use exposure compensation in both cases if you are shooting on the white snow, sunsets at the beach, or at night (for example). In fact with most modern cameras even that is seldom necessary.

What is important, however, is readiness and the awareness of how the images will look when downloaded and opened up on your desktop. I just don's see how m-mode fully helps you with it.
