Misunderstanding Object Orientation
I feel that this can't be further from the truth.
Maybe if "pushing too far into OO" means not leveraging OO properly and following proper design. The entire point and one of the main benefits of good OO reuse of code, reducing or at least limiting repetitive code.
What I have found from the anti-OO crowd that I have run across professionally is that they simply don't understand proper OOD/OOP. Maybe all that is needed is education and not abandoning a great software engineering cornerstone.
