Margin considered harmful

Today I learned that margin can be considered harmful in some cases. Max Stoiber tweeted about this and a lot of people, myself included, agree.

Many developers use margin to add space between components. This makes the reusability of a component really hard. As Max puts it:

"A well-built component should not affect anything outside itself."

I'm using Slot-Components whenever I want to add extra space between Components.
