I think everyone is thinking in the box. I believe if you lube your (ORING) chain all you do is invite dirt to stick between the roller and the sprocket and cause premature wear. While I respect the gentlemans opinion on chains, he does deal with racers who regularly trade out their chains. In the real world (mine happens to be in the dry desert) there is no rust to worry about, and your chain on a high power street bike will streach out of shape and dye long before the orings crack and fall off. I believe keeping the chain clean and dry (no lube between the roller and sprocket) will give longer sprocket chain life and keep the bike cleaner.
