General Question about recommended Battery use

Hi all. 

 

I have the following question:

 

On the ACER battery guidelines, How to charge and care for your Acer battery it says 

Conditions that can adversely affect the battery

Using the computer on constant AC power.
Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as described above.

Am I missunderstanding something? Is this for real?

Everyone else seems to recommend the opposite. That discarging to the extremes, and indeed even charging to the extreme is very bad for the battery. Lenovo etc. even have battery management tools to limit charge to for example 80%, in order to increase battery life.

 

Can someone clarify this please?

Cheers.
