Hey no need to do that, if you remember OP learnt ballroom east coast swing originally and quite likes that and there's no need for any name calling in any direction. These are different dances and in very different cultures, it's like comparing western horse riding with English dressage. One is better for competing in dressage and the other is better for herding cows in various terrains. Metaphor aside, one thing to remember with it all is that lindy hop is very much a dance that evolved out of the collsion of western partner dancing with african solo dancing, so a lot of the downwards pulse aesthetic with the relaxed knees and slightly bent over at the hips etc. comes from the african side of it. For people wanting to really work on their lindy and who are up for crosstraining taking west african dance classes can actually be really helpful. The people who wrote up a ballroom syllabus for swing basically removed most of the african inspired elements and "cleaned it up" (from their perspective) but what they really did was basically create a different dance that from my point of view left out the bits that really make lindy super fun but that's a my opinion thing, I know there are people who don't like lindy who do like ballroom swing so that's all good. Another thing I find very interesting though is that there's actually a pretty big solo dance side to lindy hop these days, almost all the lindy communities have some solo vintage jazz dance classes occasionally and there's usually some breaking out into solo jazz steps in most showcase routines too, not so much in normal social dancing for obvious reasons.
