I used to, when I first learned BASIC, but not since learning Pascal.
In BASIC, lists (arrays) have always begun at subscript (index) zero, but so many teachers and authors didn't understand that and taught at least three generations of programmers wrong. https://www.codeproject.com/Uploads/Membership/Uploads/2587207/BASICarray.png[^]
Anyone who still believes that array indices in BASIC begin at one have no excuse for continuing to propagate that fallacy.
A bit of VAX BASIC by way of demonstration:
20FOR I = 0TO421 A ( I ) = I * I
30FOR J = 0TO431PRINT A ( J )
