Furminator ruins coat?

I remember reading somewhere (here?) that some people think the Furminator tool damages the coat. Yet so many people swear by it and say it doesn't. What's your experience?

I think it's a great tool when the dog is full grown has both it's coats in. From what I have read, on a mature dog that is blowing it's coat it is a life saver. On a young dog or puppy it could break the coat. I use a good slicker and a comb on Jake, but I have my furminator ready for next year!
