Also taking away reach from the spiked chain.
They should have just taken away the spiked chain.    Plenty of actual weapons to use in the same role, like the kusari-gama.  :p  Also, the Starknife is twice the munchkin the spiked chain ever was, and nearly as silly.  Author's Pet, the other side of the grudge. 

Are we at the point we should start a new thread for our kvetching?
I just assumed it was because Utsuho says something about a "high-temperature, high-pressure world" in the Suika story. High pressure plus high temperature = fire and bludgeoning.
The Power Attack rules change did have the bad result that at high levels you are better off not using the feat than using it, unless you are using tricks to obtain extraordinarily high attack bonuses, but if you are doing that sort of thing you could've just obtained high damage bonuses without using Power Attack.

Power Attack I think may have been a legitimate, if misguided, attempt to speed up play by ending mid-combat recalculation of attack/damage bonus and Flurry change may have been poor math. Sneak attack with splash weapons was absolutely a grudge thing though.
Also taking away reach from the spiked chain.
I genuinely suspect it feels like someone in PF wrote this vow as some kind of revenge for 3.5's Vow of Poverty feat, which they apparently had some kind of grudge against.
Feels like there are lots of those grudges in Pathfinder.   Like the deliberate blocking of sneak attack damage with splash weapons.  Making Flurry of Blows into Two Weapon Fighting.  Power Attack losing granularity.  Untyped bonuses derived from ability scores somehow being a type.   "Stop playing WRONG!"
