It's true for the most part. If you're not playing for a living then just play with what you can afford to lose. It's kinda odd for a someone with a $200,000 house and an $80,000/yr job to worry about whether or not they should play an $11 tournament when they'll spend that much and that the drivethrough without a second thought.
When somone (not a pro) asks about bakroll what they're really saying is "Hey man, how much can I afford to play with if I never want to spend another penny on the game, I already play a winning style of poker, and the only thing I have to worry about variance?"
Face it, 95% of you are not winning players (yet) and are going to lose whatever amount you deposit no-matter what. All bankroll management does is is slow the bleeding. But if you are a winning player, then you should always be playing with the most
money you can afford to lose. If you have a good paying job and you can afford to risk $100 a week then do it. If you lose it then wait until you're next paycheck and do it again. I think sometimes people are more interested in nursing a meaningless bankroll than actually winning. For me the game is about the money, not about how long I can go without depositing.
