Short Buyins at No Limit Games

The Poker Penguin says - Never buy in for less than the maximum in a NL game. Here's why:
In the multi-way gun battle that is a No-Limit cash game, chips are like ammunition. The motto of the successful player should be "peace through superior firepower". There is no excuse for ever having less money than the minimum buyin. That's just crazy talk.

Why am I so adamant about this?

Well, picture this. It's a juicy $25 NL ring game. I get dealt QQ in early position and raise it to $2. It's small enough to keep four of the suckers in. Flop comes Q72 rainbow. I'm even ahead of the mighty 72o here, so I bet out another $2 trying to entice as many as possible to call me down. Two people call, and the button throws a $10 re-raise out there.
