"most people don't do it" is not a material objection since most people don't go to casinos at all. However, of the minority that do, the small minority that do learn to count cards with today's methods are still successful enough and common enough to be considered a problem by the casinos. Lowering the barrier to learning how to count cards by using 4W and 5W tech encourages the small minority to grow, which encourages the casinos' problem to grow.
