if you drive with your foot on the clutch you maybe applying slight pressure which could probably wear out the plate and the springs.

It doesn't take much pressure to burn a clutch out, another thing people do is keep the clutch depressed whilst parked, instead of putting it in neutral.

If you drive with your foot on the clutch..riding the clutch..it reduces pressure causing the clutch to turn a blue,ish colour!.Thats how they can tell!.
