I find it odd that they (Github) don't really bother to justify their stance on this. The guide just says "don't use them", not why they find it in their interest to do so. It'd be interesting to get a better understanding of why they think this.

Personally I don't see the point in omitting something that leads to known problems instead of including it and encountering zero problems.

Aren't the GitHub team members rather youthful, in general? Skilled, yes, and also opinionated and outspoken. Things might change as they get older and settle into a more balanced lifestyle.
