I own one and I'm willing to call it user error. In my experience it's not as finicky as you seem to believe. The resulting data of your poll seems to agree with my standpoint. Two out of 14 of your respondents said they had issues, and only one of them was due to over-tightening the filter on the MAF housing.
Obviously, it's your decision to make. But keep in mind that discussion on forums very much highlight the negative experiences, rather than the positive ones.
