Misconception: Using an FX lens on a DX camera "extends the reach" of the lens

Please forgive me for repeating this thread but the misconception continues to be propagated.

Using a lens designed for an FX size sensor on a camera with a DX size sensor DOES NOT "extend the reach" or change the effective focal length of the lens.

Please see the thread http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1021&message=31319179&q=magnification&qf=m for details.
