Not the territory

I know that there are some people out there who object strenuously to maps in fantasy novels. If you're among them, can you explain to me why? and whether it's an inherent objection or just an objection to things that are correlated but not causal?

Also -- and again, this is for people who object to maps in fantasy novels, so if you don't so object, don't worry about it unless you feel you have something particularly clarifying to say -- do you just dislike having them in the book, or do you feel that the author shouldn't make them at all?
