I disagree.  I often limp with good hands that are not considered raising hands by the book.  These limping hands would be raising hands if I was in better position. The advantages are:

1.  you get to see more flops without being reraised out

2. Often a player in position will raise with a worse hand, and you’ll get to play a pot against them with weaker holdings

3.  You can play against the blinds with very weak, dominated holdings and hit hands like flush over flush

Disadvantage:

1.   You don’t take down the blinds.
2.  You’re not repping a big hand and it will be presumably more difficult to win post flop.

If stacks are very deep, it makes more sense to raise every time you open a pot.
