Greg, that problem 2 years ago was with spinnaker fabric, not silnylon. Not only MLD and Thru-hiker but also Gossamer Gear ran into issues. I had to wait over a year for my now-beloved Squall Classic! Fortunately the new spinnaker--when they finally got it--tested out better than the old. However, I recently saw on Thru-hiker that the problem of spinnaker quality has arisen again.
I haven't had any misting issues with silnylon, even in heavy rains. I weathered a number of Colorado cloudbursts (several every evening for a week, about 30 min. of torrential rain and hail with each) with a SMD Lunar Solo with zero problems. Lots of condensation, yes, which the hail in particular tended to knock off the tent wall (as did my dog's tail wagging!), but nothing coming through the fabric except for one tiny spot on the horizontal seam that I missed in my initial seam sealing. I have two larger silnylon tents (Tarptent Squall 2 and Rainshadow) that have been in extended heavy rain with no misting. I also have silnylon rain gear which has had zero leakage since I seam-sealed it. Maybe I've just been lucky, but I personally have never experienced a misting problem.
Like Ron, I grew up in the days when you didn't dare touch the inside of a tent when it was raining! Maybe that makes my perspective a bit different.
