This is how I feel too. I don't really consider the effect on the tone because there are so many other factors that you could easily negate the effects the neck joint would have. It all comes down to comfort/ease-of-repair/ease-of-setup for me.

That said I won't dismiss any guitar because of its neck joint type.

Eclipse the golden mirror, and the reflection is set free...
