Justice and Rule
If it were only the box and couldn't be anything else, I'd probably agree with you. The fact that they changed it so that a phylactery can be literally anything is what makes you wrong about this. A ring(or shoe, or pitchfork, or glass bottle, or...) that has no paper, no box and no arm wrap cannot have been intended to be a Tefillin and was simply a mistake on their part.
It's always been like that, though. The Dragon article is just the easiest thing to point to in that regard. 3E is the one that made the reference more obvious, even with its mistakes. Just because it can be other things doesn't suddenly negate the what they said was the most common version of it.
I don't think it's deliberate, and I'm not going to report it, but you do come off in a way that I don't think you intend.
No, if you feel that way, report me. I've been quite clear with what I've said, and if you are honestly offended by it you should report it.
