I’ve noticed this a lot with scientists who dismiss philosophy. They personally engage in bad philosophy, and then they say philosophy is bad because of bad philosophy! They identify philosophy as a problem, yet the problem in philosophy is them!

I think this is one of the biggest problems with communicating philosophy… non-philosophers engage in bad philosophy and cannot distinguish bad philosophy from good, so they dismiss all philosophy as bad. It doesn’t help that the subjects that philosophers engage in also happen to be ones that laypeople are forced to engage in without critical inquiry.
