There are a lot of people in more competitive clans that like playing fog but like to be able to see the board before first turn.
It is about being 'fair' in my opinion.
People that join foggy games and take first turn real quick to take advantage are players that need to take cheap advantages.
You can't just say 'play sunny' they are not the same game style and there is no reason if people want a game option for fog to be allowed to be seen that it can't exist.
After all using your line of reasoning if people made a suggestion for shorter speed games (1-4 minute rounds) you would probably just say "play the five minute and be happy". The fact is though that people like to have different options and styles of game play and having this as an option helps improve fog game play IMO.
As I said before it seems to be a more 'competitive' clan player type of a thing to enjoy/like/respect the fog rule so it may not be something that you have experienced much yet.
If you are truly good enough to beat another team you shouldn't need to take a turn real quick joining the game second and greatly hurting your opponents odds of knowing what you did.
