Ok, what's this? has V taken possession of your earthly coil, or is this some sort of over verbose grandiose attempt at saying "Nee-neeh! Whiner!"
Let it be said, I don't think Webuild fails just because of this, as I said before this is just another reason; practically, the only thing Webuild did good was Ramiel, and that's about it; the rest of the time it's just like rewatching the animu (agreed, with better, crispier animation) or re-reading the mangoe (only this one comes faster and on time)
If I were to draw a parallel, watching webuild and the animu side by side is like watching Starwars Original and the remastered hyper deluxe whatever it's called edition; nothing much in the way of the story is changed, except for minute tidbits being changed.
Of course, you should know this better than me, seeing as how the whole site was based around the notion of "Hey! let's all of us anal retentive fans band together to obsessively discuss about every small detail we can find of a series no one understands but we have to otherwise we are failures!"
Other than that, I guess you're right; why spend too much time on this when we cold be doing something better, like say, having a life :P
So says the manchild
