MC Cable

There is a lot of talk in the discussion forums online as to whether or not anti-short bushings should be used for MC Cable installations. Since so many electricians use them as a safety precaution and as a matter of habit, it seems like a moot point as to whether or not they are actually required on MC Cable. Many contractors just see them as added insurance against shorts. What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments. Take a look at this recent forum posting, and you'll see what they're talking about:

I have no idea why anyone wouldn't use them. They come with the cable for crying out loud.

Not only that but I've been in the business 25 years and you should use not just because they are attached to the cable but because anyone who knows anything about the installation process would know that you use them.
