Meta Keywords are in Use?

Why most websites are not using meta keywords in the header? and if I use meta keywords, the Mozbar extension shows me the error "more than one meta keyword in use".
In case, if according to Google webmaster guidelines meta keywords are not useful then other search engines also don't have any impact on Meta keywords?
using meta keywords will perform negative SEO?

I just read that meta keywords are irrelevant to SEO as of 2009 as far as Google is concerned. I assume its a similar story with the other search engines.

Apparently meta keywords were too easy to abuse. Irrelevant or spammy meta keywords could lead to negative effects on SEO.
