Yes. I like the freedom and they're great for prototyping.

When things get large with a lot of moving parts, you need to write 
elaborate tests at every layer to validate the whole thing and even 
then, things slip through. I've also felt that the freedom encourages a 
kind of loose thinking that I have to guard against.

This is completely subjective though and based mostly on vague feelings 
that have accumulated inside my head over my career trying to tame these 
computer creatures.
