The short version is: if you don't understand them, just don't do the
bad ones.

The more useful information is:

that's a wiki, so what I see when I read it now may not be what you saw
when you read it. And it might be different tomorrow. And I'm not going
to help the archaeologists by being explicit ;-)

But reading that page right now, the first item seems described as a
possible configuration maintainability problem; the second item seems
the same -- basically "don't repeat what you don't need to repeat";
the third item is described as processor-inefficient; the fourth item
doesn't say why but just says "use try_files".

Is any specific one unclear to you?
