I am of this opinion because SQL scripts change and what is today column number 2 may become column number 14 two days later.
This, in turn, leads to potential problems because you think it's ordering by something whereas instead it's ordering by something else.

And anyway, you should never be using an order by number - unless there is really no way around it, in my opinion.
When people make statements like that it would be really helpful if they were to say *why* they are of this opinion, otherwise the reader doesn't gain anything.
