I'm sorry but in my opinion that is crap advice...
Fish come in all varieties, the calling stations, the maniacs, the weak players, etc;
Against the weak players, you are only going to be winning small pots at a time because they will give you limited action.
Against the calling stations, your going to have to sit around for a read or for a solid hand - and they are rarer than you make out in your 2nd post on here.
Against the maniacs, your going to be faced with some extremely tough decisions early on - risking your tourney life on a possible coin toss.
With a short stack you can do more damage to good players with a larger one.
I mean play TAG, play your good hands and you'll end up around average stack at the break, then start to work on it - against the 'good' players
