Never heard of it myself. It'd be nice to see people actually use some form of sense instead of basing an opinion on what ifs.
If you drive a nice car, it may get stolen.
If you have a nice house, it may get robbed.
If you have a pretty girlfriend, she may cheat (goes both ways I reckon).
None of these are proven likelihoods, but you could what if them all to death.
I think the risk of being sought out or accosted by some gangster thug punk bitch because you open carry, is about as negligible as your car exploding in an accident because your keep a full tank of gas.
Control your risk factors, and do what feels most comfortable.
