Reasoning behind this opinion... oil is key to long engine life. Oil drains to the pan when not running. Idling is not the best mode to get cold oil from pan evenly distributed in the engine… driving it lightly is better. Warms the oil up faster and pumps it harder plus all the bumps, stops, and turns aid in distribution. Within 30 seconds to one minute, the engine is ready to roll.
One other consideration that's not as important, but hey... you save on fuel too!
