While I agree that TOS cocked up speed and distance on more than one occasion, particularly since shuttles seemed to have no warp capability, the movie has opened the can of worms even wider
I like how whenever someone highlights a flaw in 'nu' Trek the go to defense is that old Star Trek did it worse. That's like saying it's okay for someone to mug an old lady because their dad did it as well.
You're confusing what we're saying for some kind of attack on the old. What I think is being said is that we accept Trek for what it really was, not some idealized head canon. It didn't bother us before, why should it matter now?
The ideal time that it mattered was when the reboot initially started. That was when they could have decided to make a change, but they just didn't want to (nor would many creative teams want to). Bitching about it two movies in is just not accepting that fact from the first movie. I'm not sure what people were really expecting in that regard.
