(I balk at the "therefore/but" rule, but I balk at storytelling 'rules' in general, because blah blah subjectivity. I felt like mentioning this for completeness' sake but don't actually want to talk about it, because my argument is mainly esoteric and irrelevant to the spirit of storytelling guidelines.)

Blindly following the 'rules' without a sense of the underlying dramatic principles they reinforce is a pretty good way to make your story rigid and soulless. However, I really think the 'therefore / but' rule is beyond a mere guideline, and gets to the heart of what good storytelling and good drama is.
