It is true, of course, as with many statistical techniques, that this technique may lead you astray. I have not done any simulations myself, but I will refer you again to the reference in my original posting:

Parker, R. N., & Fenwick, R. (1983). The Pareto curve and its utility for open-ended income distributions in survey research. Social Forces, Vol. 61, No. 3, 872-885. http://www.jstor.org/view/00377732/di010900/01p0014t/0

I think it's fairly easy to prove via counterexample or simulation
that this can easily give the wrong answer.  Can you give a reference
that supports it?
