Arrow's isn't talking about the use of abilities - it's about the use of daytime. Not that I'm agreeing with him as various things can occur (RL can make town just as much as him have less impact on the thread; scum kill / silence leaders) that mean that not every player makes a huge impact every day phase. In fact, no-one has ever managed the feat of hugely impacting the game every day phase.
Does everyone need to be a leader, all the time? No. Were things achieved in the day phases before scum were hit? Yes.
Are people sometimes too reliant on waiting for night abilites to push a lynch through? Yes, but it worked. Let's not be too critical of a winning strategy.
