People hate it because they don't understand it, which really isn't fair to metric because metric is so much easier.
That's not true. I hate it and I understand it. (I'm not going to get into the DTV thing, it's just an off topic argument) I've tutored people who needed to learn the metric system. I had a bunch of little memorization tricks and normally my tutoring sessions with other things did very well. Metric flipped and flopped around and even when I got a few people to understand it they still hated it. This isn't just some "oh everyone's ignorant" situation.
