I don't know why the parent comment talked in such absolute terms, but these recent problems may be relevant:

https://news.bitcoin.com/mishap-sees-user-lose-30000-btc-on-...






Bitcoin.com isn't a neutral source on LN related material. The parent company (St Bitts LLC) directly invest in Bitcoin Cash startups that compete directly with Bitcoin itself.

The bug has already been patched, and had a limited userbase. The user who supposedly lost all his Bitcoin ended up not being true, vast majority was recovered. It's also worth noting that the user also deliberately went against various UI warnings that funds may be lost.
