So I guess that makes me stupid? I have been around the profession of arms my whole life, and hunted constantly during that time as well. I have the great good fortune to own a few rifles and to have fired darn near everything up through .600 (though I didn't like that much at all.) In other words, I think I know how to use a rifle without awaiting a phaser.
If I can employ a rest which shortens sight-in time while making the whole effort more precise, then I actually think that I'm pretty smart and probably don't need "fixing" as you so artfully put it. And, as I noted, I have actually used one regularly for what must be a decade with no issues at all with rifles or scopes, regardless of theoretical postulations to the contrary. It allows me to spend more range time utilizing the positions I will use on a hunt- to include sticks. For me, that all to the good and not so stupid at all.
I believe you took my post out of context as I didn't mean to offend you. I meant to point out that those who stack up the lead sled to stop "all movement" were going to damage a rifle by providing an inelastic condition where the gun absorbs 100% of the recoil (a very unnatural condition). As you probably noted I also use a LS with a bag of shot for some of my rifles for precisely the same reasons you do. I'm sorry if I offended you as it wasn't directed at you
