Case-based explanation (CBE) goes by many names, and in this paper I will argue why we should tend towards alternative choices when designing XAI systems. My argumentation for the stated claim rests on four broad points: (1) people seem to dislike CBE; (2) CBE relies on weak semantic linkage; (3) CBE is epistemically outmatched; (4) CBE is restrictive. This paper expounds on these arguments and concludes with thoughts about characteristics of possible alternatives.
