"...Not all of those spells have defined spell tables in this work. That is deliberate..."

They were trying to help and made an understandable mistake; the section they quoted could easily be read as meaning those rules were deliberately omitted.
A couple of things to note:
1. The passage quoted certainly does read as if those rules were deliberately omitted, and to a certain degree this was intentional. Part of the philosophy of the DCC RPG was
that not all of the rules would be clearly spelled out, with the intent that the GM would be encouraged to be creative and players owning the rulebook would not
have access to all of the secrets of the campaign.
2. Having said this, as Harley noted leaving this particular item out was an oversight and probably not intentional. At least, I don't recall any such discussion occuring in the alpha or beta phases of playtest.
i just love how some folks were trying to play it off like it was intentional.
3. Having said both of these things, it still doesn't diminish the fact that statement this comes off as kind of rude. I think that we all work hard here to maintain a board which is an enjoyable place for anyone to come and discuss a hobby we all love. I know that DungeonFaster might not have provided exactly the answer you were hoping for, but let's try to keep the conversation civil and not too snippy.
