I prefer "Nothing has changed. However, the text involved was complicated and not at all obvious, so it is no fault of yours whether you saw it or not." I would honestly rather see people posting in anger about something I worked on (which obviously I don't enjoy) than see people posting the whole "It should have been obvious to you" thing, even if it's in support of something I worked on. It wasn't obvious, or there wouldn't have been need for an FAQ. There's no need to draw lines in the sand or pick sides and be "against" each other here. We're all people who enjoy playing Pathfinder, and we just want to have a great time in our games and figure out how the game works together.
Well, that's not really compatible, is it. If one side thinks that this is a rule change then we're not really figuring out how the game works so much as figuring out how the developers want the game to work and then making it work that way. But that's neither here nor there. Pathfinder is its own game and depending on the unwritten circumstances in play it may actually have worked a particular way the whole life of the game. What's really important is whether the benefit of the more complicated method is worth the complication. As I can see little to no benefit then it seems like needless complication.
