You ignore his point about the Manager's lack of hobby experience, something that I feel is a valid complaint given the nature of the store.
His last point is a little more complex than I think you make it out. I've worked retail and service jobs through secondary education and university so I've experienced firsthand that if you're the face of an establishment, complaints about policy and procedure are directed at you; it comes with the job. I feel his complaint is misdirected, but still valid. He called customer service, and without making assumptions or accusations on what he did or did not tell them, the response he got should have cleared up the problem he had, or settled the matter. In this case it looks like the customer service he called failed to follow through with what they said they would do; which is bad customer service no matter how you cut it.
More important is that the managers response in the store was very unprofessional; getting pissy at a customer, justified or not, reflects poorly on both him and the establishment. Outside of anything else, the fact that the manager did this speaks volumes to me about his ability to successfully maintain a business with the kind of environment GW wants to promote.

But I do see you points you're making. I got into the game initially because the models were really cool and I enjoyed building and painting them. My boss got me into the gaming aspect, and I've always been a competitive person, so it was a natural progression. This is one of the reasons that I don't like seeing painting scores go out of tournaments, I consider it part of the 40k system and should have equal weight to playing for determining the overall winner of an event.

As far as unexpected armies/units; I believe that they have a significant impact on the game. The concept isn't as strong in 40k or other wargames at it is in MtG or other card games for the factors you mentioned above (open lists, can see all of the opposing army), but it can have an impact. It comes more from using units in an unexpected, but effective way. This can work for units that are already seen as good, or units that are undervalued within the army.
