I also expect this portion to be more vocal and outspoken than those people who don't mind these things or are actually targeted by them.
All of which are legitimate reasons for many gamers to have a lower opinion of Oblivion. Not sure what's so hard to understand about that. It obviously doesn't apply to everyone nor is anyone claiming it does.

I've never seen anyone claim that Oblivion is only worth buying for Nehrim though, and I don't share that opinion. I personally think Morrowind is more enjoyable than vanilla Oblivion, but there's the possibility that I'll like a modded Oblivion even more when I finally get around to playing it.
