It's not hatred mate... It's pity mixed with dismay about the state of education and social disfucntion engendered in such beliefs all expressed as what would be seen as good natured ribbing if the mistake being pointed at was hmm lets say mistaking Paris, Texas for Paris, France.

'Self made' is a myth, all of them had to first develop strong and binding connections with sources of capital, influence and discreet knowledge not their own. It is as much, and more in most cases, the cultivation of these relationships as it is their talents and vision that make for success.

Define 'better'.
For me better implies an increase in utility. Current /. has a very high utility quotient indicating that a complete redesign is unnecessary and a few tweaks here and there would suffice.
So why do it?
Because some people are trying to justify their existence and insure their own niche by pandering to the money bags with a 'vision' to attract an greater more diverse audience and redefining the environment in which they exist. OR The money bags gave them the directive to increase the views and they are just responding to the pressure the only way they know how.
