I read the entire post. History might say that "the North won the Civil War", someone writing to press an agenda might say that "if the South had a better butter knife they would have won the Civil War". There is a big difference between history and a sales pitch.
I get the impression that the general dislike of DIR is NOT because it is a different way to dive that makes SOME people happy. DIR is earning a bad reputation because some of its devotees believe that the "DIR way" involves attacking others. I suspect that you will see the manufacturers trying to disassociate themselves from that image in the future.
