In some ways, I agree. However, let me expand my answer...

comment Can the padding layer of chain or plate armor be worn separately?
Mostly, the padding for armour is not attached to the armour itself, but is essentially thick, padded clothing worn under the armour. There are a few armour pieces where I would consider attaching the padding to the armour, rather than having it loose (like, say, a gorget). Source: I have built, worn and fought in various combination of chain and plate.

comment When is a shield wall a viable tactic?
@fgysin By all means have projectile weapons towards the flanks as well. For super-extra bonus (and massive amounts of training), start them in front of the shield wall, then let them back through as the opposing force starts getting close. But oif you have them on the flanks, you may lose their projectile firing (drop projectile weapon, go for hand-to-hand; alternatively get munched up by the opposition).

comment Why can I not sneak attack with Magic Missile?
@IanJohnstone It seems RAW indicate "and must be able to reach such a spot", I read that as you must be next to the target. But that would also invalidate the "ranged attacks within 30 feet", so I'd say that the rules-as-written are somewhat ambiguous.

comment When are the daily uses of a magic item recharged?
If I were forced to make a choice as a GM, I would pick one of "sunset", "sunrise" or "midnight", depending approximately on what flavour I want the magic to have. I would probably avoid noon, since that is a time that is very likely to occur during active adventuring and doubling the number of available charges accidentally is likely to have noticeable game balance impact.

comment Should a history skill check let a PC identify a language?
I guess I'd happily allow identifying a "language family" (I can look at text and say, with some certainty, that it's written in a Slavic language, but getting to "Polish", "Czech", "Slovak", "Croat", ... is a lot harder). Similarly, I can look at text and say "Estonian or Finnish", but...).

comment How different is D&D since it first came out?
If you look at OD&D, Halfling, Elf and Dwarf weren't even races, they were character classes. At least if my memory of the first two sets I used to own 30+ years ago are correct...

comment Dealing with large amount of dice rolls for a single damage roll without making it drag on
I timed this yesterday, rolling and summing 10D6 took me about 25 seconds (varied between 21 and 27 seconds, over six trials). Based on that, 40D6 should be rollable-and-summable in "under two minutes".

comment Dealing with large amount of dice rolls for a single damage roll without making it drag on
As to what my "daily dice carry" is, I have a box of 12 D6, slightly transparent; Chessex, I believe. I have 3D6 that were custom-designed by one of the players in my GURPS group and another 5-or-so D6, for a total of about 20 D6 in a pocket in my backpack.

comment What colors were the polyhedral dice in Red Box D&D?
I don't recall the colours of the dice in the box set I purchased in, um "mid-80s" (probably 1986 or 1987), but I do recall that they were not regular (the D6 has 4 rectangular and 2 square sides, the D12 and D20 were "squished", can't recall the D4 and D8 being true or warped)
