Ultimately any framework is to extract out some of the repetitive work that a set of application (in this case web applications) all have to do in common.
So why not? It is like why not just program in assembly instead of higher level languages. All technologies are build on previous technologies, so take advantage of it instead of reinvent the wheel.
The key is to chose the right framework for your project. The factors to consider are:
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
