If you read the full exchange it started out with Sean simply tweeting his distaste for the proposed name change to a proposed feature.

Then Rick made an implicit assertion of a false dichotomy (suggesting Sean's stance that the "smoosh" name shouldn't be used means breaking the web) in:
> breaking the web is not  an option.

While also condescendingly dismissing Sean's view due to him being "new to these meetings".

I think the abrasiveness in this exchange was ostensibly initiated by Rick to which Sean replied like-in-kind.

It wasn't exactly mature for Sean to carry on the tit-for-tat hostility, but I don't think Rick initiating it or Mariko chiming in to defend Rick initiating hostility exactly helped.

Agreed, while it wasn't exactly constrained, I don't think that the first reaction should be to try and ostracize, then push out anyone who doesn't conform to social norms.  Even if someone else is acting childish, it's up to you to be better, to be an adult and adopt and deal with that situation as a grown up.

That said, were there no conflicts with ES5 and say prototype.js?  As far as I'm concerned, mootools shouldn't stop the use of the original name.  I said as much in the discussion thread on GH.
