I figured out last night why he said not to grab the rope. I was leading a steep overhanging route, fell, grabbed the rope (probably an instinctive reaction to falling -- just wanting to hold onto something), and then the knot tightened on my skin and ripped a piece off of that fleshy part just below the thumb (on the palm). It's pretty nasty. I won't be grabbing the rope again...
