Cast iron pan and glass cooktop

Is it safe to use a cast iron pan on a glass/electric cook top? I've heard it might crack the glass.
Has any one used a Lodge pan? on glass/ceramic top. I'm worried to try one since the "lodge" is raised on the bottom.
Cast iron and carbon steel are great matches for glass/ceramic tops. If you are prone to dropping things on a cook top then glass/ceramic shouldn't be used regardless of the cookware. One way to avoid accidents is to not use silicone pot holders or mitts, as they can be very slippery when handling cast iron. Sliding of pots and pans of any material is not recommended.
I've used many Lodge pieces on glass/ceramic, never had a problem.
