Mollies & swordtails breeding - bad or not?

I am planning for my new 60g. I already have 3 mollies. AqAdvisor says not to add swordtails because of inter breeding possibility, however when I search online I see people with videos of mixed breed molly/swordtails and they seem quite proud of them like it's not a bad thing.

I'm interested in the views of others??

Mollies and swords cant breed together but swords and platys can. They make interesting crosses

Apparently you can! There are videos on Youtube people have posted showing their mixed breed molly/swordtails. Here's one Tropical Swordtail Black Molly Mix - Christmas Baby 2012 - YouTube
