Like I said, gatekeeping, which is dumb and bad. The people that post that kind of thing are desperately trying to cling to a past in which they got to use a particular term to assign themselves to members of an exclusive (because nobody knew about it) club. Now that the word "roguelike" has been co-opted by a massively larger population to refer to something different, they're reacting by being assholes to anyone who uses it in its new meaning.

I mean, I get that it's distressing to have stuff changed out from under you like this, but that's no reason to take it out on well-intentioned people who are trying to find more information about a genre they enjoy.
