Telesphorous wasn't saying we expect trads to be perfect (though we would hope so), but that there is a clear issue in trad chapels right now- and its not confined to SSPX chapels- I've heard the same of parishoners who attend CMRI and FSSP chapels as well.
I have never met better people than the trads that I'd call friends and acquaintances. I feel at home almost nowhere but my church.
Not once have I met anyone in the Novus Ordo that I can get along with for sustained amounts of time -- these are, almost without exception, brittle and proud people who think that they are justified in repaying the smallest imagined slight with turning their backs on you completely, or if they can't ostracize you completely, making your life miserable. The trads I know suffer constantly from Novus Ordo-ites. The stories are almost nonstop. The last heresy in the world is to be against the Vatican II church; this is to be judgmental, cruel, unsympathetic, harsh, etc.
I cannot speak for the SSPX, but I can speak for my CMRI chapel, and even for my Facebook circle. The trad world is certainly not perfect -- the Church was never perfect in its members -- and some people are lukewarm, but the group I have found for myself is great; once you get past expecting absolute perfection and learn to be patient and forgiving.
I'd agree there are two types of trads, just as I'd agree there are two types of Catholic in general; dead members and living members.
