I hate bottle circumcision

Disclaimer: wax is not covered in this post.

I just hate the idea of circumcising a wine bottle.
To be more precise: waste time and skills in order to cut a circumference around the capsule, leaving most of it intact except for a disk that will allow access to the cork.
I LOVE instead to just pull the useless thing off, or mercilessly cut it and throw it away.
At least, that's what I've been doing for way too many years -and bottles-, and I'm happy with it.
Am I missing something?
