The same argument could also be used for anything that someone enjoys. Not everyone (myself included) loves watching a bunch of overgrown monkeys throw a ball back and forth down a field, or playing baseball, or watching skiing. But everyone is so passionate about the things they love that even while not everyone likes it, they can. Quite frankly your argument about playing games is better than watching, in some cases this is true (for me playing physical sports is more fun). But I can honestly sit down and enjoy watching a good game of Starcraft almost as much as playing the game. Being able to watch strategies unfold in ways that you'd have never thought and executed with speed that you couldn't even imagine (I'm sorry but if playing at 200+ Actions per Minute isn't talent I don't know what is, meaningful actions that is though, I could do 200 too but I probably wouldn't be getting much done because I'd just be clicking everywhere.) And honestly we're no different than any other person who enjoys watching sports, hardcore gamers are not special in being passionate. I've seen a grown man cry because his football team lost (we all know one of those guys) but they aren't exactly the rule or the exception. I suppose if they had something like the Coliseum or (see movie Gamer) you'd probably be going apeshit to watch a sport too.
Oh and I don't know if I'm late with this ramble and this shit is already over, I kinda just read up to page 5 and decided to post.

Yeah everyone got fed up with the rules and blamed it on me again for enforcing them.
To all you guys saying you'd be better mods than me, you're absolutely free to ask jcap to become mods. We sure do need some.
