I usually get bothered by magic because 90% of the mods don't require much infrastructure or thinking, just time and effort.
I can only recall 4 tech mods requiring any kinda thinking, infrastructure, time or effort. Gregtech, RotaryCraft, ReactorCraft and ElectriCraft.

Actually quite a few tech mods don't even require time and effort.​
Most tech mods actually do require quite a bit of thinking when you first experience the mod, or even modding in general.
It only gets that way when you've been around a long time and already know how to do everything.

Mekanism's ore processing (3x and more) requires significant infracstructure as well. Other then that not really for Mekanism.

Mek requires thinking if you want compact builds. And the 5x ore processing isnt something anyone would ever need. Its recipes are even cheaper than the others. Not a contender for most complicated tech mod.

True, but even back when it used to be a plain mod, it tried it's damndest to make sure other stuff wouldn't work well with it, unless you count fan-made companion add-ons

And FlowerChild has full rights to do so, even some people doesn't seem to accept that. The way FlowerChild got treated by the Forge/FTB community was terrible.

What happened?
Oh boy not this again
Long story short
FlowerChild, SpaceToad and Eloraam originally built the forge API
FC and Elo fell out over a couple of issues and combined with the technic pack redistributing his mod illegally; FC quit working on forge, and dropped the API from his mod (rendering it incompatible with other forge mods, as BTW and forge modified the same minecraft class files)

The way FlowerChild got treated by the Forge/FTB community was terrible.
The way FC still gets treated by Forge/[some]FTB ect is terrible and completely unacceptable.

Then some leading community members such as LexManos teamed up with someone called "FlowerAdult", and started "Better With Forge". BWF was supposed to be a Better Than Wolves clone, but was never released. Under the 7 hour long stream where BWF was planned, LexManos constantly harassed FlowerChild. This is another reason I don't like Lex too much. FlowerAdult was probably some FTB/Forge community member hiding behind an alias.
