Watch out, guys! It's the fun police! :P
Seriously, for some people, playing an effective character is fun. I can enjoy playing a fighter just as much as I enjoy playing a bard, because I have fun playing an RPG at the table. The truth is, though, that if I were given the choice I'd choose the a caster over a martial character every time, because having options and cool things to do all the time IS fun.
Well your reasons are wrong based on the assumption that martials don't have anything "fun" to do all the time.
Also, define "being effective" because as far as I know, all classes are effective in some shape or form.
The vibe I get out of some people is competitiveness vs other players.
