Your last post I can follow. That makes sense to me. But the other stuff I think you're Missing the thrust of the polemic. It was all to do with the critical discourse, and nothing really to do with dance floors. It was about establishing hardcore as worthy of serious critical appraisal and esteem.

We don't want our music being critically appraised by the middle classes. Let them think of it as trashy druggy noise.
