Should we be turning lens stabilization OFF with its not needed?

I’ve been following this thread hoping to learn if lens stabilization systems have any negative effect on sharpness.

I get it that lens stabilization can make some images possible in lower light without pumping ISO above the limits, but should we be turning this to off when it’s not needed?
