Yes, that is what I meant. According to at least two different sources, it's not recommended for use when you need to make an increase in the same position on every row. (A third source says to try to have at least 2 rows in between, but I think one is enough.) Most patterns have increase rows alternating with plain rows, so it's usually not a problem. (If you really want to use them one on top of the other, you can prevent pulling by making your increases loosely -- that's according to one of the books.) As for the names KRL and KLL, in one book I have, they are called "lifted increases" and in another, "raised increases." They might be in your books under one of those terms.
for KRL and KLL, Amy's referring to whether you pick up the left loop with your left needle or the right loop with your right needle, not the direction of the slant. Honestly, those things confuse me so I just use whichever one looks good, and then use the other one on the other side.
I don't bother to think too much about right and left.
