You realize if "every team does it" it cancels out the advantage of doing it right? It's a strategy that only works if the other team isn't aware you're doing it, if they are it loses all effectiveness and you only hurt the jungler in the process. People could just....last hit better? Seriously, the jungle creeps have respawn times, minons keep on coming. Until you can tell me how you get better income by leaving an infinite stream of gold (aka minions) I can't really believe you.
Pros doing it is not a compelling argument either. You're going to have to actually give me the reasoning behind it if you want to convince me, or anyone else with a brain for that matter.
1)Minons are infinite
2)Jungle creeps technically are too, but have a massive respawn time in comparison, so might as well be limited.
3)You have to leave the lane, and thus a constant stream of gold, in order to get gold from the jungle, thus you lose gold in the process.
4)You hurt your jungler.
There's very little about the idea that strikes me as good man, just being honest.
