Changing up your list a bit in response to who you are playing doesn't seem like list tailoring to me. I generally take all comers, but there's no reason to feel bad if somebody brings out AP3 weapons to fight my MEQ's, or brings along flamers and meltas if they know I am bringing my (mechanized) guard. On the other hand, I have played against people (One Tau player in particular stands out in my mind) who would wait until they had seen your army list, then choose from one of several lists specifically designed to trash yours. That is what I think of when somebody says "list tailoring."
We live in fame, or go down in flames!
This is a game like real war, played against time, and played under circumstances of considerable excitement, and it is remarkable how elastic the measurements of quite honest and honourable men can become.
