Last night we defended 6S, and I opted to not lead my stiff trump. We beat it two (P had J9xx of trump, and declarer guessed the trump length wrong). I had told my P about this discussion about how leading stiff trumps is typically not very good (if you want to know if a trump lead is stiff, ask yourself if your opponents are either very bad or expert+), and I joked with him after the hand about how i could have led my stiff trump.
When we were getting results, I heard a guy ask the director "do you think in general it's a bad idea to lead stiff trumps?"
