i've never had anyone mention that before
it's possible that that green stuff on the rings wan't pulled from the fabric, if it was you should be able to see obvious fabric damage (check and see). there's alot of that "stuff" that gets pulled off the seams in the final checkover, it gets all over the floor and clings to everything, some possibly got snagged on the ring and has been there all along
not using anything will cause the cord itself to wear out
