I will move from the more factual stuff in my previous post to opinion

I do wonder if the "old fart" guys have some conscious or unconscious resentment of the fact that post-processing has become so important in photography, thus diminishing the relative importance (but not absolute importance) of the exposure/composition skills they have honed over the decades. The world has moved on, and away from them, a bit.

At the same time, some of the "youthful" guys, in actual age or photographer-experience-age, may under-appreciate the vision and artistry, the compositional/expressive skill, achieved by (some of) those "of age".
