I wouldn't say I have any hate for any of the newer writers, rather that I don't enjoy their writing. And there's a big difference between not agreeing with the opinion of the writer, and not enjoying their writing. For instance, I almost always disagree with what John has to say about video games, but I absolutely love reading his articles because they are very well writtern, well thought out, are intriguing and thought-provoking. In fact, many WOT's of his have told me everything I needed to know that I would probably not enjoy playing the game he was reviewing - even though he was recommending it!
And to achieve that kind of writing is no easy task.
