During the days of the debate over the invitation of the Valar to enter Valinor, the Elves split into two camps: those who desired the Light of Valinor versus Elves who did not wish to leave Middle Earth. The Calaquendi, meaning Light Folk, and the Moriquendi, meaning Dark Folk. Moriquendi had from the beginning a negative sense, implying that these Elves willingly tolerated the shadows that Melkor had put upon Middle-earth. The Moriquendi were regarded as greatly inferior by the Calaquendi as they were considered lost on their wanderings towards Valinor.
In my humble opinion, who is to judge the decision of the Moriquendi? The journey through darkness may be much harder and more painful, but to the eyes of a creature of darkness the Light shines so much brighter at the end of the tunnel.
