Bad bad bad bad, shouldn't jack the car up in the middle of the axel, putting all the backend weight on the axel will bend it.

i think he means that jacking there will bend the axle which will affect the camber of the rear wheels and therefore put more wear on the outer edges of the tyres - similar to tracking being out on the front

I always jack cars up off of the beam, it's a good place to put the axle stands. If you could bend it by jacking up off of it then it would collapse under hard cornering.
