I don't like the debate on how to cook eggs because it's a personal choice of what you like better. You say "destroys the texture". What if i don't like the texture? Which is really the case for runny eggs. I just downright had the gooey texture to it. I agree that there are indeed a lot of black and white, right and wrong in cooking, but there are certain things that come down to personal preference and there's a good bit of grey involved.
comes down to personal preference. Period.
But if you like eggs cooked til they have a grainy consistency, then you, sir, don't like eggs.

Exactly. That's great that you like well done steak - go forth and be prosperous! Just don't expect me to cook it that way for you, and don't presume to think that you like steak. You aren't tasting meat at that point, there's no inherent flavor of the animal - what it ate, how it lived, where it lived - is completely lost. Same with any overcooked product.
It's all well and good that someone likes eggs cooked til they're rubberized....... but don't think for one moment that you like eggs, or even have any idea what an egg actually tastes like.
