Not to put words into Jeff's mouth, but I think his point was that if we worry about the "never dos" we won't develop our own voice.

I, personally, don't consider "we see" or "ing" verbs as a "writing style." I just see the "never dos" as an artificial limitation, regardless of writing style. These "never dos" are kind of like telling a sculptor he can only use one hand when sculpting.
STANDARD DISCLAIMER: I'm a wannabe, take whatever I write with a huge grain of salt.
