I've always found this to be a strange duality in the Scala community. On the one hand they praise strong, static type checking in general Scala programming, and on the other hand they praise an almost untyped paradigm in the actor model. And few people seem to take issue with this.

Plenty of people don't like this aspect of Akka. Most of them are using scalaz-stream instead.
