Pick up the bit, and look at it. How does it look like it would feel? Painful.
People do not like them because they, in some cases, have had horrible physical and mental effects on the horses mouth. Mental, being the horses willingness to accept the bit. By all means, in some cases - the horse may never have an issue with the bit. But, as crimsonsky said, try the bit in your own arm. I personally, would find that uncomfortable in my mouth. All the time.
