The thought process of changing it at too high a mileage is sludge / debris has accumulated and a fluid change carries the possibility of dislodging it and clogging the various orifices. IMO you've got sludge / debris build up it's better to change the fluid than not.

My thought is those who experienced problems after changing the fluid either had problems prior to the fluid change or the change was done incorrectly.
