Automation testing?

Hello everyone my question is why is automation or the use of tools is frowned upon in the ethical hacking community for the most part. Why do most pride themselves on testing manually to find vulnerabilities and so on does that take longer no matter how experienced you are in hacking? If so then why are tools made if people feel this way, and they refer you as a script kiddie. I just want to know what the community thinks about this or should i not care and test the way i want within legal limits of course.

Thank you.

Not sure what you mean there. It’s not that automation is frowned upon. In some communities there is an leaning towards learning how things work. Scripting is automation and is used by most people to save time (depending on task).
