But then again, Steve Clarney never returned to the University from sabbatical…
Nope, he sure didn't.
But then again at least we got an official statement on how it was supposed to be viewed, basically the rough paraphrasing was: "Oops, we screwed up. Sorry guys. You can use him as Miskatonic, but he is officially an agency man now."
Also, he is more than just a simple misalignment of the resource icons as he is on a agency character card. The above conspiracies are the correct coloration for their factions, etc. but the wrong resource icon. So the type of error is a bit different even if not by much.
I agree that it should be used as printed until errata is made, if it is ever addressed.
