Answering your questions objectively? I’ve no clue but I have assumptions
They are afraid to hurt Larian feelings
They think that Larian is being benevolent to offer such distinguished service to the humanity
They think that the community is not good enough , after all they aren’t working in gaming industry
They are to lazy to read an argument
They do not know enough of 5e to understand the argument
They’ve heard somewhere that DnD5e is not balanced and they echo chamber it
They think that a game is not under the laws of free market and capitalism
They suck at math?
They loved dos and want the game to be like it?
They are afraid of drastic changes
Well, the list goes on. That’s an objective answer
Hope you like it OP
