The operative word here being "yet".

You need to eject any mounted device from your Mac. Neglecting to do so can cause damage and/or data loss on the device you failed to eject and unmount properly.

As long as there is no data writing in progress, it probably won't kill anything if you forget to eject your iPod. (key word being PROBABLY) Now if you unplugged something during a sync or something, then you might have problems.

I accidently bumped my brothers nano off the dock before i ejected it (it said do not connect, but it wasnt syncing anything, iTunes wasnt even open) and over 3/4 of his songs were gone.
