I've heard every apologia for JJ Trek imaginable, and you just reached for the usual "the old stuff sucks or is no-better" argument. I have no interest in using straw-man arguments, and if you want to clarify it, please do, but left to a one-liner like that, that's how you come across, and you really should be aware of it. It's your responsibility to be concise.
No, my comment was just that: it wasn't better before. Just different to a degree, and you prefered it back then. Hence, nostalgia.
