Observer guide needs a better disclaimer/warning #2865
As a best practices consultant I've run more than once into clients justifying using Observers because they are in the guides. There is a paragraph in there that warns readers that they might not be a good idea, but it's easily glossed over and not nearly as explicit enough to convince readers to not use them.
Most often I need to sit them down with Stefan Penners WGE Observer Tip Jar talk to convince them they really are a really bad practice.
I would also be fine with just removing the whole page, as I feel like observers are just a power user feature of the framework.
For reference, I'm talking about this page: https://guides.emberjs.com/v2.12.0/object-model/observers/
