Can anyone help me understand why everyone is saying not to use bleach?

I'm very curious because it's mentioned in a way that suggests it should be common knowledge.

Why is this?

It's the chlorine in the bleach that can cause TCA, cork taint. I've heard that once it's there, it's very difficult to rid themselves winery of it.
