Default Brine in metal pot?

I got a question from a reader about using a standard stock pot for brining. Says he "always heard" that one shouldn't use metal for this purpose.

I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer - so maybe I missed something in chemistry class - but I'd never heard of this before. Of course cast iron or aluminum would be out - right? - but why not use a large Revere Ware type stainless steel stock pot?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
