Bay leaves are a hoax, agree?

Bay leaves are a common ingredient but I say they impart zero flavour to a dish. They are put in for aesthetic purposes only to make a mediocre meal look posh. No one has ever said, "wow you can really taste the Bay leaves in this," nor has any one ever said, "you know what this needs? A bay leaf." You get more flavour from the wooden spoon you stir with than a Bay leaf.
