It's 29 yes now (including my vote).
I too hate triggers, but not having triggers would be worse than having them. since theyare very useful when properly used.
The treason I hate triggers is that too many the people who try to use them haven't a clue what they are doing and create nightmares for people lie me to waste our time on. But that's no reason to vote against something that would clearly be an improvement. Having BEFORE triggers might make validation triggers simple enough even for dummies to understand, and especially with the idea suggested instead of simple before triggers would make logging of validation failures a lot less likely to be got completely wrong that it is when currrently trying to use INSTEAD OF triggers without the suggested new trick (which are rather unsuitable for the job) for that purpose. If that had been around in SQL Server from day one life would have neen much easier. .
