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.
