If you has said "'dist-upgrade' shouldn't be used for an unmonitored routine upgrade" then, yes, you may have been right. But you didn't, you said:
"'dist-upgrade' shouldn't be used by people running Debian unstable"
Which is completely false. If dist-upgrade is not used by people running unstable they will reach a point at which their system does not upgrade when they tell it to.
"'dist-upgrade' should be used with care when 'upgrade' doesn't perform as expected" sounds reasonable. But again, that isn't what you said. You gave no qualifier and simply stated dist-upgrade should not be used by unstable users.
