Great post! This is one of the better versions of "what not to use for data visualizations" I've seen in some time. This goes nicely with a post I did today on pie charts.

I would also highly recommend Stephen Few's, 'Information Dashboard Design' as a good read. You definitely can't go wrong with E. Tufte!
