I have a recollection that this issue (well, just for 2 y axes, rather than 3, which is even worse) was discussed in the not too distant past, with pointers to some good cogent examples of why one ***should not do this***.

However I can't find this discussion; can't think of the appropriate terms to search on.

Can anyone remember/point out where this discussion can be found?
