The lower elos are obsessed with it, woe betide you in gold if you dare go against a player's plan to counter someone with a champion choice that doesn't actually counter anything. It's one of the things I particularly hate about this elo, that and the fact that everyone is scared of pushing.
I find it more funny that they're picking heroes they don't know how to play in order to counterpick a lot of the time >.>

If you're good with your champ you shouldn't worry too much about counterpicks. Most of the time they counterpick a champ thinking they instawin, they just end up being friggin horrible.
The problem comes when the person counterpicking is actually good at their champion too.
There isn't that many match-ups that are so severly one sided that if your opponent is equally skilled you'll get steamrolled no matter what you do. And if you see you're having trouble and you're afraid of clashing in 1v1s you play defensively and farm it out. Just don't let them snowball.
Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
