End of the day use what hasn't let you dowm ...polamar/ grinner once or twice thro the eye/ knottless knot... all are super knots if TIED RIGHT
I must say, i allways trust the polamar to a swivel simply because its an easy trustworthy, quick knot to tie

I like to use that Kryston bondage stuff on the end of my braid where I cut it after the knot, trying not to get the glue over the whole thing, just the end.

I dont know the guy you mention Common but rather than just assuming some one is correct because they have a name I would much rather hear their reasons.How do you know he hasnt just read the back of one of Daves packets?!
I know some very "well known" names that have come out with strange things!
As for glueing knots I dont think a correctly tied not requires glue. In fact in some situations applying glue can cause the knot to not work properly ie like applying it to a leadcore or similar hollow braid type splice.
I do however use it to tidy up the tag ends on knots tied in braied mainlines ie to stop them fraying.

Also I do listen to proffessional people and learn alot
I glue the leader knot mainly to get a better taper on it
