It sounds to me like you're raising a false dichotomy. If, by "cargo cult programming", you mean "doing something you don't fully understand"; well, that's true of a lot of programming, and indeed, a lot of life.

This choice of words was mine, and as I learned, wrong. I don't know what it is called, though. Maybe just "(following) bad advice".
