It wasnt meant to be insulting. "artists" ( whoever they are, I loathe this word ) usually mumble hiding behind irrationality and symbolism just for the sake of achieving some unnecessary depth for their views. If there is established lore then why would anyone want to imply that it is irrelevant.
I do completely agree. There is in game lore and book lore that are canon and tell you certain details. People seem to love to keep ignoring those (Like thinking the JK killed the actual Emperor) which makes no sense to me. Though I think it's important to be diplomatic and understand that even if you don't understand why people do what they do, they do in fact have their own reasons.
