I hated it too before ~5 years ago I tried the long exposure myself. If you shoot at base ISO at dawn/dusk, you inevitably get long exposures without any filters. Also the smoothed out water flow is how ancient (older than ~100-150 years) landscape photography looked like. The film those days was very low ISO and required long exposures at daytime.

So I convinced myself that fluffy water is actually perfectly natural in photography.
