You probably should be using new $wp_query

mines not the best but here’s my blog.php

I've read around that using query_posts is bad but I've seen many a themes using it and get away with it. 

My case is I'm trying to put together a template-blog.php for StrapVert and this is what I've come up with so far:

add_filter('option_show_on_front', '__return_false');
  global $wp_query;
  'paged' => $wp_query->get('paged'),
  'post__not_in' => get_option('sticky_posts'),

  global $more; $more = 0;
       $more = 1;
remove_filter('option_show_on_front', '__return_false');


But before I add these changes to the theme and submit an update I'd like some feedback on "How Really Bad" is query_posts and can I "get away" with the above?

Thanks in advance,
