I'd say it's rather more like the question, "should I use a brush or a roller?"

That is, there is a correct answer, but the rules are difficult to generalize, and discussions confused by parties speaking at cross-purposes when they make different assumptions (like a house painter arguing with a graffiti artist). More information is necessary to make the question really meaningful. Also, sometimes it matters, and sometimes it doesn't.

When it does matter, it's obvious what works and what doesn't.
