Never lay your guitar on Naugahyde or plastic covered furniture. There sometimes is a chemical reaction that takes place between the lacquer and plastic that can either leave part of the guitar finish on the furniture or vise versa. Also watch out for guitar straps made of plastic.

Yes, my experience is, avoid any black rubber material used in products that come in contact with the guitar's finish. The black rubber used on guitar stands will sometimes do it. I wasn't aware of the capos though. Thanks for the heads up!

You mentioned that you should avoid any black rubber contact with your guitar because it can react with the lacquer finish. Well I now have a darkened spot right on the Martin logo on the headstock where I used to
"keep" my clip-on tuner. The darkening seems to be irreversable.
