Triggering Your Drums Is NOT Cheating!

Is using an electric guitar cheating? Electric bass? Amplified keyboard? PA system?

Just saying..................
I've never played drums with any of the above, guitars would make cumbersome sticks :). You're confusing amplification with cheating aka note replacement.

The excuses you hear from trigger users are the same as roiders in the gym. Always makes me chuckle. Take the "enhancements" off them and there's not much to write home about. Easier to take a shortcut instead of putting the hard work in.

I like dynamics way to much to use them.

It's all about those weighted keys.
Also the difference between a generated sound and a triggered electronic sound. The better keyboards to a better job, but it's still not the same feel or sound as when you strike the actual tuned string.
