If your team is badly organised enough that someone going off to kill a tower when you aren't looking makes you lose, did you really deserve that win?
I admit, there are one or two losses I've had that were intensely irritating due to a couple of good pushers hammering home, but it was nobody's fault except my teammates who weren't watching the map. Yi can rape a tower with shocking speed, but he generally has to burn Highlander to do it, which makes him a bit more vulnerable - and if you're fast, catchable and killable. Twisted Fate can teleport up and out again before you can respond, but he doesn't take down towers that quickly, and certainly doesn't have time to take down two towers before you can respond. Twitch can outrange towers, but only while his ult is up, and when it runs out, he's forced to wait for minions - only a severely overfed Twitch can kill a tower in one ult use. Sivir is possibly the biggest pain in the rear, but she's interceptable.
Point is, backdooring is entirely counterable, and I've never seen it make a team win who didn't deserve to win. I've lost a close match or two to it, and I've won close matches with it. It's just another tactic. Deal with it.
