Disc rot has nothing to do with how you burn the discs. It is about how the manufacturer applied the lacquer on the discs, so it is their fault not ours, the users. I had this kind of problems with Samsung Black CD-R's, which aren't quite lousy and cheep. I have cheeper bulk blanks who are in mint condition over a very good amount of time, burned and stored the same way as thos Samsungs...
