Sorry if this response is all over the place, it kind of got ahead of me and I was trying to bang out at least a somewhat thoughtful response before I had to go to work.
As a million people in this thread have already said, I feel like web components and frameworks solve different problems. I do think frameworks should work to target WCs where it makes sense (isn't Vue working towards this?). Extending built-in HTML elements is very cool and currently underappreciated, but to me it seems hard to justify building an entire application around it, in the same way the argument a few years ago could have been "yeah we could use frameworks, but we could just as easily write document.createElement('div'); ... ourselves!
(there's probably other things but these come to mind)
I don't entirely disagree with you but I'm certainly reluctant to buy into any "one size fits all" kind of solution.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
