As far as I can see, the poster was not objecting to LVM per se;
he was simply asserting that it should not be the default,
which I agree with.

I was an LVM fan for some time,
but ran into an insoluble problem a couple of years ago,
where some kind of corruption preventing me accessing my LVM partitions.
I came to the conclusion that the disadvantages of LVM
far outweighed the advantages.
