No issue with the backup; it was the right thing to do if you were uncertain.
I understand what you say about technical issues, but, in my experience (and I am a linguist, so I tend to understand communication problems), it's more about user confidence and willingness to engage than any problem of clarity. If you have any suggestions as to how we could express things more clearly, those are always welcome, but I thought that the user whose language I borrowed for the FAQ post had done rather a good job of describing what he did and how he did it; it is difficult to see how he could have made things simpler or more logical.
As a moderator, I ought to be very severe about your off-topic promotion of your little Celtic nation at the end of England, but I think I'll just refer you to my cousin in Lostwithiel (Lancastrian like me, but with a Cornish father and married to a Cornishman). If you are not careful, I'll go on about the Isle of Wight ...
