Tracking Drums-Who Uses Compression and for what?

I have to date tracked drums using no compression. However, I have been tempted to use an opto on both overheads-to try and take some of the hi hat edge and soften a bit. I am also tempted to use a VCA compressor on snare and kick-for tracking-slow attack and quick release-for very moderate control.

Who swears by never using compressors -Fletch referred to it as sex with condoms.

Who uses compressors and for what strategy/effect?
