I can't really support that hypothesis. At all. In fact, I'm not even sure I follow the logic. People started complaining about Melee because they hated the people who play Melee? Why did they start hating them in the first place, then?
You're also sort implicitly putting everyone in the same camp here, intentionally or not. You seem to say now that people who complain about Melee do so because they hate Melee players. I don't hate Melee players but I have plenty of complaints about the game.
People I know always thought Melee was too fast and too difficult. But we played it because it was cool to beat up Mario with Pikachu (for example). It was fun in that regard. Nothing has changed.
