I have a friend who grows cilantro, she loves it. She chopps it up and makes pesto with it, blech!
I think the operative word (s) is "over load." I kind of like a hint of it....that's okay...in Mexican food or even curry dishes. But it does seem that a lot of cooks over load things with it and that might be what bugs me. (?)

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
