If they are better than what went before is not your choice. It is only the choice of others.
This mindset is that of uke. I wouldn't have been able to create Aikibodo if I thought that way.

So you no doubt have a new way. Good for you. Promoting it as you do is thus in my opinion your failure especially as you call it a fact. This only gives the impression of arrogance or delusion.
If I weren't at the forefront of Staff research then there'd be no reason for anyone to learn from me when there's so many Aikido teachers twice my age everywhere!

CONCLUSION: If you stuck to reality and just offered it as a new way which you believe may help others in (what you believe it does) then they may not feel so offended.
This thread's a couple months old, they were offended before I said this earlier today. I'm not going to explain it to you if you don't understand.
