I agree with both friends here. What you are talking about is well known, and the edge port type was specially created for these purposes: it does not generate topology changes when transitioning between up and down states, and becomes forwarding immediately after going up. In Cisco parlance, an edge port is called the PortFast port, and can be configured using the well known spanning-tree portfast interface-level command. Note that STP still runs on a PortFast-enabled port, just its behavior is modified. PortFast port still send BPDUs and are prepared to receive BPDUs, and should a BPDU be received, the port will lose its PortFast operational status and become a non-edge port until it is unplugged and plugged again.
In a switched network, it is almost never advisable to deactivate or disable STP.
