You seem to imply that it is, but other sources limit it to only highly formal writing.

This relates to:
Sans que (+ ne explétif) + Le Subjonctif = Without doing -

Bonjour Mike !

The ne explétif is optional - essentially, the more formal the writing/conversation, the more likely it will be used.

Understood, but that is not clear from the lesson. It seems to imply that in writing it is required.
