Look, I think we're all glad that the gliding language was fixed, at least for some customers, but whose bright idea was it to be that way in the first place? What were they thinking? And why aren't they talking about the gliding errata at all? As originally written it was incredibly broken. Who's responsible for it? How did nobody catch how broken the gliding was?

You know, if any of the gliding controversy was done by a European contributor, I wouldn’t hold it against them. We can’t expect everyone outside the US to be fully cognizant of our gliding issues. But the American personnel on the project should have noticed that there were unfortunate gliding implications and, you know, edited the gliding bit.

They probably didn't think folks would read it that way. Had a mental image for how it would go. Possibly forgot this is the D&D fandom who read how Truespeakers went in 3.5E, realised they didn't work, and also realised that the precise wording of their spells lead to Infinite Angel Cascades simply because someone didn't put in the limiter on it.

Then, moment it comes out, the net's first instinct became "Hey, falling from a jump should count" and wavedash
