Subject: reusable bottles

A fellow homebrewer recently mentioned to me that one has to be careful to use
*re-usable* bottles. But he wasn't sure how to tell if bottles were reusable
or not. He did not think that refundable bottles were necessarilly reusable.
I've got several cases worth of mostly long neck Rainier, Sam Adams and Bud
bottles. Is it safe to use these? I've got another case or so of miscellaneous
bottles, how can I tell whether I should use those?

I've also discovered that my capper works just fine on Red Hook and Sierra
twist off bottles. Is there any problem with reusing twist off bottles?
