Here's one I've been reading lately, Daniel Lemire's blog:

He had a recent post on the unpredictable and high memory usage of C++ STL containers, something I have long fretted about.

Not to mention that many newbs use STL as a substitute for thinking.  I can remember a few years ago posting some code on a C++ forum that used a Buffer object on the stack.  The destructor freed the memory so that the code is much cleaner.  I was chastised for not just using an STL container.  I pointed out that Bjarne Stroustrup used just such a Buffer object in his C++ Programming Language book.  I mean, not reinventing the wheel is one thing.  Throwing in the kitchen sink just to avoid a little testing is ridiculous.  I like to take a nap as much as the next guy but laziness != efficiency.  :)
