I don't eat much peanut butter, but don't consider it bad. If you overeat it, or it causes you cravings, then it might be bad for you, but like most foods, this depends on what diet you are following, and how it affects you. I don't think most foods are good or bad. We all agree leafy greens are good, and sweets/pop are bad, but the vast majority of the food is in between. I can't have corn on low carb, so for me it would be bad, same as whole wheat, but most consider that good food.
What you are hearing is it is bad for someone else. That shouldn't matter to you. Do you lose weight while having it. The one poster has it daily, with no problem. If you can control how much you eat, and lose weight steadily, why not eat it?
