There are too many little things to nitpick there.
Maybe. This isn't an official FUNimation communication, or at least the ANN article doesn't state it is; so it doesn't need to be precise. But I do worry about this, because what someone says in an in
formal context may be a good indication to what they really
think. I also have a habit of assuming everyone is my adversary until I can trust them.

Why do you say that? If you dis
like something very strongly, why is it a waste to communicate that? Airing grievances is something that is quite natural and has a rich historical background: the USA's independence came from it.
If you can turn people off
to an anime through an AMV, that can mean a few things. Here's a few of them:
* Your AMV shows a significant portion of the show, or perhaps all the good bits. Basically, makes people think they've already seen the whole thing. This gets into the "AMV that's just the entire show aggregated" scenario, which is obviously wrong. (Well, I think it is.)
* Your AMV is a criticism of the show, and it is executed well-enough to get others to adopt your opinion of the show. On a large enough scale, this would affect how many people decide to buy copies of the show. Frankly, I think that would be a pretty awesome AMV; you don't come across too many AMVs
that communicate an opinion, much less do it well. I don't think that's wrong to do at all.
* Your AMV is crap, and makes the show look like crap. I'm not sure where this stands on the right-vs-wrong spectrum.
