Not upset, Ron. No complaints about the technolgy that sent men to the moon or kept the Soviet "workers paradise" at bay.
For myself - in the Hi Fi hobby - I have not needed additional flux beyond the rosin core of the solder itself and IMHO it would add to the complexity.
Using a non-corosive rosin based liquid or paste flux should not be a problem but just seems to create more work to clean things up when done.
