Default Question about HLM for small-boned lifters

I'd like to hear from small-boned lifters who have achieved success, or from people who have successfully trained small-boned lifters.

Casey Butt advocates an HLM approach for small-boned lifters who do full-body workouts three times a week. He says that the joints of small-boned lifters can't handle the stress of heavy weights that often. John Christy, however, basically said that the hardgainer and small-boned lifter concept was overstated, and that they should workout like everybody else. I understand that these aren't the only two iron gurus, but I'd like to hear your thoughts about the HLM approach for small-boned lifters.
