I just want to clarify the only thing I have against Guru's is when they say, NEVER do this or that to a creative person. The Guru's DO NOT's list that Centos points out has merit. It's just that when the Guru says NEVER use these things on this list, that doesn't have merit.

To use as a guideline, yes, to whatever fits the writer's style and voice, but to say ABSOLUTLY MUST NEVER USE is not good advice.
