I always wondered. Now I know.
From the comments:
"use nails you frickin hipster blog idiots, take it from a pro, unless specified previously. the shear strength is your main factor, nobody cares if a screw looks cooler or is funner/easier to work with when their structure collapses because the fasteners couldn't support the weight. screws will shear off quickly."
