I'm sorry but this is an absurd statement. It doesn't matter which
finger you use as long as it works. When I first started playing
slide I used my little finger, but I found that the slide flapped
around when I tried to chord. I switched to my ring finger and it's
worked for me for 25 years +. If it's wrong, I'd rather be wrong
than right. :)
