Kinda takes the "If it ain't broke -- Don't fix it" approach too far IMO.
If you're taking NA motors OK, but for turbo motors I would definitely
disagree unless you were running synthetic and mostly highway miles.

"Advocate of never change oil philosophy."  I'm guessing you just keep on
adding oil then until the filter clogs or letting the motor run dry
eventually?   Motor:  Why fix it?  Just replace it!
