I know I'm not a doctor, so you shouldn't take my word for it, but I find that crackly necks are bad because it signifies trapped tension, and when you don't get to release it, it just builds up and makes you somewhat immobile (contrary to what the article said). I personally crack my neck/joints because I gotta get the extra senovial fluid/lubrication in the joints in. During the mobility part of my training warm-ups, I also make sure to crack my neck or shoulders (the snapping sound is just the tendon moving back into place, if I remember right. Not really bad unless there is PAIN). But again, my not having a diploma renders me not "credible" so...
Should look into that research though. Causation and correlations are entirely different things and some articles twist correlations (which I honestly find useless unless research is in preliminary stages) into causations.
