this is the kind of comment that i consider particularly unfair. here is why:

- you criticize, but don't even explain how you arrive at your
criticism. "unintuitive" is a very personal qualifier, which makes it
impossible to address it, and thus an unfair statement.

- LAMMPS is in many ways a community effort, so if you feel, that
something can be improved, you should make an effort toward improving
it. destructive criticism is always easier than constructive

- have you considered, that perhaps your way of searching needs an
improvement? this is also a logical conclusion that one can derive
from you not finding something that is documented.
