I blame people that emphasize quality too much, the guides aren't really meant to tell people to use avisynth, only provide it as an option with some basic understanding. In most cases people would be fine just eliminating the interlacing and getting progressive frames, or just editing at ntsc if they don't even feel comfortable doing that but our years of enforcing higher quality here on the org has created the mindset that it has to be better, not could be.
"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson
