When offended people overreact and make up strawmen, that's when the discussion is derailed.

It's very hard to move forward (at all) if nobody creates proposals on "how we should be doing things better", or if they are actively shunned. And it's on us, as a community, to be able to discuss them constructively, on the merits.

FWIW, my position is we don't need to change everything, especially not the low-level functions (car and aref are fine; seq.el and map.el provide good generic replacements), but the problem is real. And "you can use the index in the manual" is not a good replacement for consistent naming conventions.
