I don’t feel quite as strongly about it. I do stick to the sentiment that if you just use a bunch of divs and set their display properties to the various table stuff and think you’re being “more semantic” that’s still a little ridiculous. But these days, those elements might actually be HTML5 semantic elements and that would be a bit of a help. Then with media queries, if you go changing around the display properties, it probably makes the most sense to start with divs (e.g. at widest width perhaps display: table is useful, but you switch to flexbox for mobile or something like that).
