When did functional analysis turn into a meme field?

>b-b-but muh functions with this property are so special, they deserve to have their own function space with its own special name and symbol
>let's prove theorems about them, just for the sake of having proven theorems about them
Literally biology tier at this point. Every idiot thinks the can make up his own category regardless of whether it's meaningful or not. Enjoy your stamp collecting, functional analysis fags.
Tfw math will advance so fast in your lifetime that there's absolutely no chance of learning it all
Nah, it was like that for hundrets of years. Of course, at some point people came and cleared up subjects and made them accessible from simpler perspectives. There are so many many topics with hundrets of papers on them that people lost interest in and nobody today really knows about them.
e.g. you never learn much about
and that's at least a simple to define algebraic concept. Things like
are cooked up and lost in time. Those things survive that solve age old problems and you never hear about the thousands of mathematicians that tried and failed
I heard about a case where a well-known mathematician wrote a paper in which he defined a space and proved various theorems about it... then later, after publication, someone pointed out the space was empty.
