Re: What people don't understand.............
Here is the thing. Although I agree with all you said. It has nothing to do with the fact that people may like Tobi more than Obito. Tobi might be a Obito's impersonation of Madara, but it's not Madara. We know for a fact that Obito went in many ways against Madara's plan and thus making the character Tobi unique and singularly different from both Madara and Obito. Maybe a mix of both and something of none. You further give strength to this idea by stating the excellent work Kishi made (and I agree 100%!) on changing Obito's personality once his mask finally fell off.

I like Tobi more than Obito because Tobi was cooler, not in terms of being more stylish but of actual coldness of thought and reasoning, planing. I loved the character because of it's ability to act! We've seen Tobi going from complete akatsuki clown, to big shadow puppeteer, to enrage and hatred fuelled Obito. But the when the clown turned into the cold manipulator that was the most drastic transfiguration it showed the most lucid and tactical master mind of the entire NV. I agree that said pose was Obito's take on Madara's personality, however I do not like Madara as much as I liked Tobi. Why? Because Madara is way more rushy than Tobi. Tobi never putted one step after the other before he had all angles covered. He bound his time doing things and never rushed into nothing.
So in this case both Madara and Obito are more rushy then Obito's impersonation of Madara. So as you see it's a matter of opinion.
