Who pets your dog? --Leerburg

Can someone explain this to me?
I read the whole article. I do understand where this concept comes from but I feel it's a bit extreme.

I don't believe getting pets from strangers will make my dog any more interested in strangers. I whole heartily believe that a dog that loves everyone can be perfectly engaged with their owner and work just fine.

That being said if my pup looks uncomfortable when someone approaches, I'll happily say no. And I totally do not think dog dog greetings are ever ok with unknown dogs..

Can someone lay this out for me? I planned on doing the 100 people socialization with my girl. Whether or not she actually interacts with that many ppl, she sure as heck will see that many different people within those first two months I bring her home.
