Boredom is subjective. Yes, curbstomping every monster you encounter as a fighter can get boring, and may lead to fatal recklessness once genuinely dangerous things start to appear. But on the other hand, constantly casting detections and working to actively avoid every monster gets equally boring. To minimize boredom, some middle ground is necessary.

This is the main reason why I, unlike many veterans, keep level feelings enabled and actually pay attention to them. Until enlightenment becomes common enough that you can use it on every level, the level feeling is the only information you get to determine whether a level is worth exploring or should be skipped via the first available downstair. It is therefore essential to any strategy based on exploring some but not all dungeon levels.
