NatF was responding to the statement that you made that Nadal is the only man to win two slams on each of the three surfaces. You did not state career slam, or named any specific tournament.
Those surfaces were 100% legit when they were played on, that is why they are counted in the slam tally, regardless of what today's surfaces for each slam are.
You could have said that Nadal is the only player to get the career slam, and win two slams on each of the three surfaces. That would be more accurate. So NatF was right in correcting your original statement.
