You are seriously missing his point. A lot of people who get a zoom will stand in one spot and use the zoom function to frame a photo, not realizing that doing so may be altering the scene in significant ways. I have no issue with zooms, I have a pretty full set of them, but I think its important to realize what each focal length (and the distance you are working at because of that focal length) does to the image you are making.
the same can be said of prime users who "foot zoom" or as airfrog spins it changes his vision to the FOV of the lens.
obviously there are more framing options with a zoom. obviously.
