Negative Freebids

I’d like to hear what the bridge community’s views are on “negative freebids.” My regular partner wants to start playing them, but I’m not very familiar with the topic besides reading this Karen Walker article (http://members.shaw.ca/conventions/nfb.htm).

Are Negative Freebids frequently played at the top levels? If not, is it because of a reluctance to deviate from “standard bidding” or is it because negative freebids are considered inferior? If negative freebids are superior to the standard negative double treatment, is it merely a theoretical superiority or is it superior in practice as well? If I decide to adopt the treatment, is there anything I need to know outside of the basics in the above article? Help! Thanks!
