It is. All these applications have flaws (because all the humans coding them have flaws, like even some things NASA builds have flaws and they are literally "rocket scientists"
) ... and if one is inclined to point out some legit and truthful subjective flaws in any of them, it's not very hard to do at all.
Too many people do too often take it really personally don't they?
Less to do with DAWs than as you say, human nature. Humans need to validate their personal decisions and the Internet is the single biggest instant source of large groups of people who actually won't agree with your personal decisions or subjective impressions, in just about any case you can imagine.
They should rename it "The Argunet".
My personal favorite defensive reaction? New user says... User:
"Hey. I used X Daw before and I'm having real trouble with this one because I was used to doing this one thing really easily and it's really hard now. Is there any plan to improve this part? It's really a pain, the workaround." Defender:
"Well go use X DAW then!!! What are you doing here if X DAW is better? Maybe you're just not smart enough to 'get' such a complex product as this?"
