The problem is people want clear cut recommendations or lists of "approved" foods when they start out with Paleo because that is what they are used to when they start other "diets". Try telling someone who isn't familiar with Paleo that it's just a "template" and that you may or may not be able to eat nightshades or dairy or legumes or "safe starches" etc. all depending on your current health, your goals, perhaps your ancestry and numerous other factors. They don't get it, they're not sure what to do and they are less likely to be successful.
So, people find a list and stick with it. But, whatever "list" the follow is likely to prohibit some foods that actually don't cause them problems. Or they may cause a problem when they are overweight or metabolically deranged, but then are fine to eat once they are healthy. Or they may be fine in small amounts but problematic when eaten in significant quantities.
However, you may not know what foods cause you problems until you eliminate them and reintroduce them later in a systematic manner paying attention to how the food affects your body. Even that is not foolproof as some foods may have no outward short term negative consequences but may have long term negative consequences.
So, in my opinion, there are not many bogeyman recommendations. Rather, there are several foods that fall in a gray "it depends" area. If it turns out a specific food causes you no problems when you reintroduce it, that doesn't mean that recommendation to eliminate it was a bogeyman, rather it just means that you are lucky enough to tolerate that food.
Having said all that, fear of saturated fat is a bogeyman. :)
