Aren't temporal mechanics fun?
Personally, I try to avoid a sense of fixed causality when possible, to avoid headaches and because I think the circumstances flow better that way. History is the interaction of dozens, if not hundreds or thousands, of unique circumstances, and they can interact in any conceivable variety of ways. So I don't tend to buy the argument that it's generally "impossible" to alter the future by modifying the past and that any attempts will ultimately bring about the same future (or a similar one to the traveler's recollection).
