No, the one thing that some people like to call a 'bug' [1] [2]
(allowing state creation not on the initial SYN of the handshake, but
on a subsequent packet) typically stalls (window scaled) TCP
connections to the point where they have to be re-established, but most
people wouldn't describe that as 'dropping throughput'.
Unless the poster was rephrasing hearsay for the sake of provokation, I
have no idea what he's talking about.
