Running several LAMP blogs for 15+ years, including numerous WP installs a bit later on (having started w/ WP Ver 2.0, if I am not mistaken), I have ranked rather decently -- as in above-the-fold page-1-listed -- and never saw any real trouble with Search Engine penalties or similar.
To sell a Plugin predominantly on a "fear factor" that inexperienced users might mis-configure Yoast's (excellent) stuff and *then* risk dis-advantages seems both unreasonable and unfair to me. Configurability (as with SEO by Yoast) is, on the contrary, a good thing, and you might want to use nofollow in certain situation even these days.
You usually do not drive a Chrysler just because it's (a little) better than a totaled BMW either...
Still, the "Stallion SEO Plugin" is doing just that. Frankly, I neither see that alleged superiority of this plugin nor does a comparison between a "correctly set" Stallion SEO Plugin and others when they are "incorrectly set" resonate. It rather appears that we are dealing with self-proclaimed "experts" trying to trump competing Plugins at any price here. A real reason for moving from tested-and-proven Plugins like SEO by Yoast, SEO Ultimate, or SEO-UK-Team's "SEO" to this one here has yet to be given.
High-pressure sales schemes by igniting some actually unwarranted fear are not enough.
