Hmm... I personally have to say that although I don't like KK2, I (and I think most of us) have gotten used to it and even found some value there... some cool possibilities that didn't exist before do now with a little creativity... so I thought this was a problem that was kind of going away... no? I have been a bit out of touch as of late, so I could be missing a lot~
Anyway, although I can see where the pro-KK2 folks are coming from, I also think it's just human nature to bash what most people don't like... for example, if everyone likes "vanilla" and "strawberry" ice cream, and then someone else likes "dirt" ice cream, he's gonna get some people asking "why" and "how".
It's just the price to pay for going against the mainstream. Not always really nice or pretty, but some of it is just human nature.
