Eating Gebruchts on Pesach

Todays daf (Berachos 38b) states explicitly that you can eat gebruchts on Pesach. The gemara says "יוצאים ברקיק השרוי" says Rashi "במים ידי אכילת מצה של מצוה". You see clearly that there is no problem eating matza that was soaked in water.

FWIW, I think the matzos today are different.

You're right. There's even less of a problem today, because the matzos are so thin. In the Gemaras time, a Tephach thick matzoh was not out of the question.

The Mishah Berurah says of people who are makpid on Gebrochts, "Ein Maznichin Oson". Loosely, translated as, don't scorn them.
