It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Different ideas, unlike different people (apparently) can peacefully coexist.

Reproducing as closely as possible the sound the composers themselves or their contemporaries would likely have heard is not an idea you have to embrace or reject fully at all times and in all contexts. The same goes with your critiques, which I certainly don't reject or disagree with entirely and in all contexts.
It's like the "Schoenberg ruined music for 50 years" argument. He didn't, nor was he the savior of Western music he hoped to be. Much to his own disappointment, Schoenberg's ideas were rejected by many of his major contemporaries, never mind his successors. You could argue ultimately he's had an impact in nearly any western music that gives a greater than traditional role to dissonance, but others have had similarly wide-ranging impacts.
There's no need to be rigid and dogmatic on either side with these things, I think.
