I think many of live regs so used to play deep stack and they overlook shortstacking strategy (SSS). They just get upset and tilted when find themselves in shortstacked situation due to opponent buy-in short, capped game or straddle. But SSS is actually quite simple. It's just very math heavy so you need to work quite a bit off the table to learn your stacking off ranges in different situations and people usually too lazy to do it. We all so get used to make our money by outfolding our opponents. And when they take away our main weapon (fold) we feel hopeless and frustrated. But it doesn't have to be this way. SS poker is still poker and you have to be able to adjust and have an edge on your opponents. You just have to study SSS, accept that SSS is higher variance than deep stack play and have mental strength to implement it at the table.
My point is don't whine about SS - learn to deal with it.
