Hmmm, no. 
1. You can’t tell people what to write and not write about—without good, valid reasons. And even then, they can chose not to take your advice. Writing isn’t about restrictions. You can suggest a new way to write something or a better way to write something, though. Because:
2. Y’know what ruins great stories? Poor writing. Poor writing is poor writing. Don’t blame the love triangle, blame the way it is handled. The way most love triangles are written is a cliché, and there are clichés surrounding almost everything. 
3. I’m not fond of love triangles, but they happen in real life. I’ve been in one. They come in all types and forms, and are interesting to study. 
4. Writing love triangles is tricky and I understand why people have problems with it. In fact, I understand why people end up writing poor love triangles; it’s just a tad hard to get them right. I also agree some stories don’t need love triangles.
5. In the end, it’s your opinion (and I bet many others) and I respect it. But yeah, no.
6. I’d like to end this post on a light note: Wanna write a quality love triangle? Make it original and fresh! With enough interest and perseverance, you can do it! There are plenty of bad love triangles out there in movies and books, take ‘em as a “What not do to”.
