Nothing happened. 99% of scenarios are a great fit for a tool that maps and moves data from the object-oriented programming language to relational databases. They decrease errors, increase productivity, and for the most part well.

Most of the complaints seem to be from using exceptionally bad ORMs or using them in the 1% of scenarios where performance is critical or very complex queries must be produced.

There really needs to be less blind hate and more understanding of when and where tools should be used (as well as the general quality of the tool itself). That's one of the basic tenets of programming so it's rather unfortunate to see so many misguided arguments here.
