What is your opinion of Split-Toning?

Lately (last few years or so) I've really started playing with Split-Toning in ACR and have really begun to like the "fantasy" qualities it gives photos. Closet thing I can think to compare is the "feeling" you get watching fictional movie or reading a comic book.

Anyway, I was curious what other people think about split-toning. Do you see it as simply another widely-abused PP technique like HDR? Or do you think it's not utilized enough? I included a sample below in reference to what I think of when I think split-toning:

I don't like Split-Toning in photos, I think it's ugly.

Split-Toning can sometimes give nice results, but I think it's over-used (or "abused")

Split-toning is great, I think more people should learn how to use it!
