Fruit flavors don't work well in bitter beers.

You might find some argument on that point.

You are really missing out on some of the best beers out there, to mention just a few: Pliny the Younger/Elder (corn sugar), Westvleteren 12 (caramelized sugar), Speedway Stout (coffee beans), HopSlam (honey), Cantillon Saint Lamvinus (grapes), Pumpking (spices, pumpkin) etc...

Disagree completely...

That's where beer begins. From there it goes just about anywhere according to ones taste and imagination.

I don't use any flavorings in my beer,But there is nothing wrong with it.Although I have to agree that a rasberry bitter doesnt sound to good.You should flavor your next brew like a wheat or just a basic ale.Maybe a rasberry smash.

Guys, lets not have a what makes a beer debate on his first thread.

Usually flavorings like that are added at bottling or kegging. I suppose you could add it in the secondary but it's not common.
