Using it correctly is a good thing. Best example is proper launch from standstill. Perhaps you don't like the term "slip"? We can use modulate.
However, proper modulation sometimes requires a proper amount of clutch slip.
Well I can admit that 90% of the clutch modulation I do is because of an imperfect rev match. So I missed a little and have to keep it smooth the second best way. That's a little less fun than nailing it perfectly, but still fun.
