I definitely see the value in your reasoning for being against frameworks, and especially css/html frameworks because the techs are just so easy to learn given the time.
But from the level of a novice (myself) you should be able to see the great value in these frameworks. While I do plan to take more responsibility in the products I produce, using frameworks (and I mean downright abusing them) gives me the power to create websites and templates that execute on all the buzzword technologies.
I use a grid from teehan+lax in photoshop to layout my design, ZURB Foundation to make that layout into html and CSS, and I’m currently templating using the wordpress framework where I’ll hopefully duct tape together the rest of the functionality of the homepage. And in just 1-2 weeks a novice such as myself will have prototyped up a responsive site backed with a CMS. While being bloated, it’ll probably be pretty stable too.
I think frameworks are good for this “rapid prototyping” type of deal where you can get a workable product up damn quick and then trim the fat, code things better, and add features iteration after iteration (and for a beginner become a better coder/designer faster, and not spending so much time spinning wheels in the mud).
It sounds really shallow. But being only 1 person starting out in the web design and dev world, frameworks are invaluable. It does come with bloat, but at the end of the day it’s really not that bad unless you get into enterprise level products.
