I'd like to add a bit of nuance to this reader's argument: "This is not a disconnect; one simply has to understand that people have an aversion to having information censored from them." The reason I would choose not to watch a de-bloodied version of a movie or TV show is the same reason I wouldn't watch the especially bloody or crazy "unrated" versions that are sometimes released for certain films (e.g., lots of gross-out comedies): I want to watch the film as the creator intended it. That means I want her edits only, and not the edits of some prude from the MPAA. Ditto for the inclusion of scenes of gore, sex, language, or poop that she thought were better left on the cutting room floor.
