I agree with Jonathan Peiffer, we should all just do it our own way and enjoy our hobby.
It's too great a hobby not to enjoy! I had fun with 3RS for a while. If I could get my home modular layout set up again, It runs nice out the outside loop, pulling the slack out of a string of Kadee coupler equipped cars sounds like the real thing and no digital circuit is required!
However, now I'm having more fun getting into 2 rail O. However, that's just me. I like my small collections of tinplate, HO and N as well. The only one that doesn't do it for me is post-war Lionel. Not my thing, but I have many, many friends who love it and I respect their interests. I've learned a lot about it over the years and do have a 2332 and 773 in my collection just because.
