I think HDR is fine for reducing contrast.  It is often overdone.  Not the same as overused.  Tone mapping, on the other hand is definitely overused.

True, personally I think when HDR is done in moderation and not overcooked, it looks great.

Many of these aren't over used, this video is highly opinionated.
