Poll: What do you think of ASP.NET Web Forms?

Justin James admits that he's not a fan of ASP.NET Web Forms, but he knows that some of his fellow developers like it. Tell us whether you think ASP.NET Web Forms is horrible.

Every time I need to work on an ASP.NET Web Forms project, I feel a cold wind blow over me. To be honest, I dislike ASP.NET Web Forms; I think that it is a really confusing paradigm; and it leads to some truly awful code. I have given up writing ASP.NET Web Forms code other than maintenance on existing applications. However, I know developers who still like it a lot.

I'm curious to know what Programming and Development readers think of it. Do you think it's horrible, tolerable, or a wonderful tool? Please answer the following poll question, and then let me know why you voted the way you did in the forums.
