This is utter non-sense with the new Lithium Ion Batteries.
It just simply does not apply like it did to the older type batteries,

although.... never let a Lithium Ion battery go for too long without a charge or completely discharge,
it kills the chemicles inside and ultimately the battery.
I learned this the hard way with my sony handy cam, I left it in the attic for over a year,
the battery obviously discharged itself over this time and now the battery wont charge or hold a charge
new battery was £80 odd quid at the time
