Default Neutral Dropping?

How bad is neutral dropping for your car? I heard about it briefly from a friend of mine that neutral dropping skews up the transmission (especially on a new car). Is that true? Supposedly it isn't harmful if it is done on a stick shift because there is a clutch... however it is harmful to an AT?

Anyone know how to explain it?

Dont do it if you care for your car. Those honda auto's are weak enough, cant imagine neutral droping them.
