Are there any times when violin plots aren't superior to box plots?

@carlcolglazier some people tend to criticize the mirrored pdf shown in violin plots. It has been suggested to use only one pdf (half violin). What do you think about that?

@jorge Hadn't thought of that before. I could see how it could be a deceptive use of area.

@carlcolglazier It would perhaps be the assumptions of the KDE which extrapolates from actual to theoretical data?
