I prefer force carbonating with CO2. You have much better control, less sludge in the keg, faster. I have done a few with cane sugar, doesn't seem to change the flavor.
One problem some people have had with priming, the seal doesn't set and two weeks later, you have to force carbonate anyway. I haven't had this happen, but I have had a gas poppet go bad and leave the ale flat.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
