Here is a question I asked a couple of months ago — Is "a special melee attack" an actual game term?
Most upvoted answers agreed that there was no game term "special melee attack", and this phrase had its natural English meaning,
Later on I came across this JC's tweet that says exactly what "special attack" is supposed to mean:
an attack can be special and not fall into either category: weapon or spell
In a hurry I shared the news with the community, but my answer was downvoted without a single comment. I doubt the reason is that JC's tweets are no longer "word of god", since the question wasn't about any kind of "official ruing". The question was about a particular game term meaning, and clarifications from the game designer itself seems the most reliable source to me.
So what is the answer's problem?
