I've only seen forum trolls say stuff like that. In real life I've had lots of people come up and compliment me on the ti and talk about how good it looks and how practical it is.

Nice, thanks for posting the spec sheets, will be good reference for others in the future. It's also important for the injectors to have the groove at the top for the retaining clip, which yours do.
