No, we're not more accepting of Sand because we've had it for three gens. We are more accepting of Sand because currently it is the least broken of the three viable weathers. I don't know how you can say we're best buddies with Sand when we've already banned the Pokemon that utilizes it best, Excadrill.
The reason Sand is getting zero hate right now is because it pales in comparison to the insanely broken things that Rain and Sun have to offer. Hell, we've already nerfed Rain with the Aldaron's Proposal ban, and it's still going strong as the most used weather with such weapons like Tornadus-T and Keldeo ruining stall's viability in the metagame. Sun is arguably even worse than Rain, because it's the only one of the three prominent weathers that still has its best double-Speed ability users legal (Chlorophyll/Sand Rush/Swift Swim). You can make an argument for Stoutland and Sandslash being decent, but they're nowhere near as good as Growth + Giga Drain Venusaur, and that's a fact.
In summation, the reason we're not seeing the massive amount of complaints about Sand that Sun and Rain are receiving isn't because it's been around longer, but simply because it's not nearly as bad as the other two.
