Carbon build up...

So my mechanic(very highly trained certified one) buddy told me that he wouldnt run 2 cycle oil regularly because it could cause carbon build up on the cylinders? what do you all think? I mean I know I can dump a can of seafoam in every now and then anyway and clean up all the carbon crap....
Just a interesting point of view. thought i'd throw it out there to see everyones ideas.

I'll add Again, (in case you forgot what I think.... )

Old engine oil, ATF, MM, 2-stroke are all "old school" remedies that just don't make sense anymore. The fuel is different, the engines are different, time to move-on

from -> 2 cycle oil
