I don't think people are taking issue with talking about a theoretical rule change and what its pros/cons would be. What some people (including me) take issue with is when people use the theoretical rule change which isn't even apparently on the radar of the RC to say "OMG, the PDGA is WAAAAAYYYYYY out of line with this- what are they thinking!!!"
It is fine to talk about a possible future rule change. It is not fine to pretend it is something currently being pushed through by the PDGA when that is not even remotely true.
