Neither is true.  I believe you're confusing log-structured file systems
and journalled file systems.

ext2 is problematic for removable drives because if you remove the drive
without cleanly unmounting it you risk losing your data.  So I would
recommend ext3 for such uses.  Performance is rarely an issue, actually.
