The danger with opening from EP with small PP is that when you get 3bet, then you're gonna be paying a larger than necessary fee to try to setmine. Or you can just fold and give up whatever you raised.
Now imagine if you just limped and MP or LP raises you. Then for the amount around where you would have opened, you see the flop.
Yes, you are not "supposed" to limp no matter what according to some ppl, but at micros there are situations where you just wanna see the flop cheaply.
At higher levels yes always just limp calling will make you too predictable. But at micros doing just that is good enough.
