Some names stick out from my early gaming days, and Lewis Pulspher is one of them. His name seemed to pop up everywhere back then and its nice to see him still kicking the tires of the hobby today.
Lewis writes about games being more complex than they need to be with constant expansions because of "money" More rules being released sells more books which makes more money.
I just added my own thoughts on the matter to the comments over at the ENWorld article from the perspective of someone that actually wrote a simplified rule system that is being distributed for free in PDF.
Its an interesting thread with few commenters (in four pages of comments) agreeing with each other. Well done Lewis!
