Why is that necessarily so? Unless you can quote every single person who wants to see the OOT in high quality, your generalization is too broad. Some people might prefer the pacing of the shorter version. Though I don't buy that one must hate certain things in order to prefer others, in this case you're saying that you hate certain things about Hobbit version A, so you watch Hobbit version B. You do realize you're arguing against other people being able to do this with Star Wars, right? So I'm not allowed to be indifferent to the SE additions sometimes, to not even take the prequels into consideration sometimes (no feelings about them either way in these cases), and just want to see the original versions I half-remember? What if I wanted to watch Star Wars and imagine what the worldbuilding behind it was like at the time it was made, so I ignored ESB while watching it? Is that allowed? Or do I have to hate Empire in order to want to watch the theatrical version of Star Wars (let's say, the one without an episode number in the crawl)?
