It almost feels like Intel was trying to build a race car and started to discard screws in order to save weight and go faster without fully understanding the exact function of what each screw did.

Intel Racecar CPU Design Room

Screws ... Bolts ... nope just toss half of them away we'll make due.

Seat belts, roll cages ... more like extra weight that will make us lose to AMD Again.
Don't make me go through Athlon again.

Security mechanism for the ignition switch ... I am 60% sure AMD isn't doing this ... whats the worst that could happen a meltdown of some sort or a Spectre that might haunt me in the future?

Cloud based hosting services such as AWS is going to get hit HARD on this. Up to 8% is going to be very impactful on their hypervisor host resources.

Queue/Cue the processor fanboys who mindlessly blame Intel while knowing nothing about micro-architecture or that the very headline indicates this affects Intel, ARM and AMD.

It is ARM, not Arm. ARM stands for Acorn RISC Machine.
Arm is what is attached to your hand.
Just like AMD stands for Advanced Micro Devices, and is not written Amd.
