Why are so many websites jumping in to defend this stupid idea?

The argument that mainstream gamers won't care is ridiculous in that they probably won't even know about it until they lose their connection and get booted out of game. That's when the penny will drop and the backlash will follow.

Being ignorant of a problem does not make that problem right.

Well in my opinion mainstream gamers will be the most affected because most play to relax after a hard day, some can only play on weekends and some others can only play a few hours in the entire weekend. So its pretty easy to imagine what will their reaction be when the game doesn't work because the servers are overloaded or the internet connection is unstable, etc.

Gotta disagree.
"Main·stream:
The ideas, attitudes, or activities that are regarded as normal or conventional; the dominant trend in opinion, fashion, or the arts."

If we look at the "dominant trend" in gaming, by looking at the xbox 360 game sales, we can see it is FPS shooters. These games a pretty much exclusivly played online anyway. Any internet problems the user having playing those games would render them unable to play either with always online or not.
