TBF, I use !important to override styles coming from a 3rd party library. But that's about the only case. Otherwise I agree with what Scott Tolinsky said on syntax.fm, don't use !important, ever.

Same. Sometimes it seems to be required, like when styling a non-iframe plugin that could be embeded anywhere.
