Do you know not to use Alphabetical Sorting?

The default sort order for most visualizations is alphabetical, but you should almost always change this.
Alphabetical sorting is really only good if you're specifically looking for one item on the X axis, but it's terrible for seeing ranks, trends, or proportions.
- Figure - Bad Example: Alphabetical gives very little information
- Figure - Good Example: Sorting by value shows rank and trends easily
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
