Re-reading that paragraph again:

"Arrow functions differ from regular functions in some nuanced ways. To simplify the discussion we're steering clear of those differences."

Beginners tend to latch onto "just a shorter way to write a function" as "the truth" because it's so (convenient and) easy to remember - using it as a justification to use arrow functions exclusively even when it's inappropriate (e.g. as class methods).
