I disagree with everything that you say...I ride up and down the curbs and jump them on my rigid fork bikes everytime I commute. I am also a mountain biker and I ride my rigid fork MTB over drops, roots and rocks which are a lot bigger then a typical curb. It's fun and it's a usefull skill to have. I have never damaged any of my wheels form curb hopping.
