Back many, many years ago, there was a debate between simplified and
traditional Chinese on USENET. I unwisely added to the debate by
observing that, as someone who had to learn both systems
simultaneously as an adult, I didn't find any real difference in
difficulty between the two. I was at once shouted down as a foreigner
who obviously didn't know what I was talking about.
The NYT could have simply pointed people to the Wikipedia article on
the debate. The arguments have been raging for decades and aren't
going to stop any time soon.
