You're excusing the new on the basis of the old
Which is fine, since so many people attack the new based on the old.

I don't think Spock calling Kirk "Jim" is relevant, though. In ST09 he calls him Jim in the Jellyfish.

So do I. I feel like I can relate these characters better than I ever knew the other characters.
I agree, but I think that the groundwork done by TOS and the movies help quite a bit, consciously or not.

No, he is making a comparison: if they can be friendly in early TOS, they can be friends in STID, especially after the terrible events of the last movie.
And that's my opinion.
