This is one of the reasons FTM and Ancestry.com advertise saying "become your family historian" not "genealogist" because most people don't do genealogy, they do history.

This being said, I agree that reports like descendent and ancestor should ignore adoptions, however for those that do history they should create some other reports that show the relationships of people more clearly. I do a lot of regional studies that include relationships like farm employment, friendships, memberships in churches, clubs and other organizations. These are part of history as well.
