I also never use it (although until I now have never considered why).
I guess the reason must be is that f[x] or f(x) is the standard
mathematical notation for the value of a function f at x and I am
used to it. I don't have this problem with @@, /@ or even @@@
probably because these are programming constructs that do not
correspond to any standard mathematical concepts.
