You have the right to your opinions and practices, but neither of these are facts. While not my choice, WD-40 can be an okay chain lubricant if applied on a regular basis. Similarly, solvents (I think you must be referring to organic solvents, since water itself classifies as a solvent) are nothing to be afraid of, and do a fantastic job of cleaning bike parts.
