I agree with you guys on all of that. There is no substitute for tube driven spring reverb when it comes to adding reverb to a guitar signal. I only mentioned the digital verbs for hall and plate settings.
I'm not a big fan of seeing people crank up the verb on their amps too much. The tone ends up suffering quite a bit IMO. I often think, "dude, you are not playing at Carnegie Hall, this is a bar and it should sound, well, like a bar" I have also seen a lot of guitar signals get muddied up in a hurry at clubs when guys throw on the drive pedal and keep that Twin Reverb at 5.
Personally, I keep the Reverb my Boogie at 4, Twin at 3 tops, and if I need some depth on a solo, or feel the need to take the tone subterranean or underwater I'll throw on a subtle hall sound digitally.
There are only two mantras. Yum and yuk. Mine's yum.
