The genre gets a bad rep from most metal fans and i am glad there is not a lot hate on here for it. For me, the years of 98-03 were some of the best times that I have had in my life. That is why I never grown to hate this genre but I can understand why older metalheads and the death/black fans hate this music.
I credit nu-metal bands like Korn, Linkin Park and others in shaping my metal tastes; I feel like the majority of the hate came from these bands being super popular and getting time on the radio and TV a lot when metal in general doesn't really have that mainstream popularity. I may not listen to those bands much anymore but when I do I tend to still enjoy it as I did when I was in my early teens
