Are "considered harmful" lists considered harmful?

In the past weeks I’ve been thinking of collecting a list of posts of the “X considered harmful” articles, so yesterday I just created a simple github repo with the very first few articles I’ve been able to find (interesting).

There has been a lot of criticism around these type of posts, but I believe, especially for the more recent ones, that they are written with good intentions (ie. Lea Verou on jQuery).

Would love to get your inputs on the list!
