The crux for the previous post is that "Fights are simple really...just go watch a bunch on Youtube. close distance, clinch, takedown, submit. Say it again five times. (this is my mantra these days!)"
I strongly disagree.
If I understood it correctly, the poster you quoted was saying "if I'm allowed to have a wide range of attacks and choose when and where to apply those attacks against someone who is using aikido. The result will not look like the aikido that practiced in a dojo. But it would still be aikido.
