I think WD-40 has been a target of bad hoaxes for many years.  Sort of like
the time McDonald's was said to use earthworms in their hamburger meat.
I've used it for hundreds of things for many years and never had any bad
experience.  Many people do tend to use too much of it in applications, and
that's one of the biggest problems.  A very light coat is all that is
needed.  Never tried it as a contact cleaner, but might give it a try next
time.  If the pot is one you can open, I would do that and let the WD-40
naturally dry before using it in circuit.
