Thanks for the response. how am I making overreaching statements? I published a diagram that clearly explains your point. However, the opposite is certainly true. In my experience most of these stacks are relatively useless in real world scenarios and convey the idea that non-data scientist can create models that they have no idea how to interpret. As a result you get a lot of models out there that are making stupid predictions with a lack of ML rigor.

The intentions are good but if you read the press and blogs out there, it was taken completely out of context. I believe my analysis is very pragmatic but feel free to disagree.
