I'm saying keeping an animal in temps that are 10 or more degrees lower

Keeping Bettas at lower temps makes them more susceptible to bacterial
infection, and will shorten their lifespan.
Happy? I don't see it.
Just because a Betta flares, moves about and blows a bubble nest does
mean is healthy or thriving.
A Betta kept at room temps is surviving. Big difference.
Of course I wouldn't try keeping Bettas under those type of conditions.
I know better than that, and it saddens me to think how many out there
are being kept like that.
Next to Goldfish, they're right up there in mistreated fish.
Maybe you also think it's fine to house Goldfish in bowls.
Or better yet...keep a Goldie in a 80*f tank. If he's still swimming,
he must happy right?
My point is that just because a fish is swimming around does not mean
that it's in a proper setting.


Well I've only been doing this for 30 years. How do I tell if they're
unhappy?

"Happy" is a human emotion.
Properly cared for fish, in the proper conditions thrive.
Fish in not so proper conditions survive.
In 30 years you haven't figured that out yet?
Heck, I've only been in the hobby for 27 yrs and I figured that out
when I was a 13 yr old child.
