So what you're saying here is essentially that a kicker had a rushing attempt. He would have gotten the rushing yards for that as well. You're comparing apples to airplanes.
In the first one you mentioned it's also cut and dried, and should count if your league says ALL TDs. What many here are saying though is that it should count as a RUSHING TD and that's simply not the case.
I'm going to make an assumption here that most of the leagues we're talking of are using ESPN (I haven't used Yahoo or CBS for some time so I can't speak to those). As Hootie pointed out earlier there ARE scoring settings that do allow for fumble TDs. If a league is set up to allow those the points would be awarded.
What many of you are advocating is changing scoring settings that were set prior to the season.
