i would generally agree with this, but quite a bit depends on the courses you have setup in your area. I personally have boiled and heated ATE superblue to the point that it came out brown, and smelled/tasted very burnt.

On the actual bleeding: Avoid pumping the pedal really hard. You want to keep the bubbles as large as possible so you can see them. If you pump the brakes fast/hard, you turn those into little tiny ones.
Absolutely. stabbing at the pedal will just allow the fluid to flow past the bubbles. it's steady smooth pumps that get them to move along.
