By "legitimate reason" do you mean "a reason that I personally agree with"? Because yeah, if you don't want a skill, then other people's reasons for wanting a skill aren't going to magically change your mind.
But here, let me give you some of my reasons.
(1) A new skill generates hype for the game. As an example, a number of my friends who mainly play RS3 had said they were going to make an OSRS character / go back to their OSRS characters if Warding passed.
(2) New skills add more content into the game. Some players like having more content, and find training a variety of skills more fun. I am one of those sorts of people.
(3) Sometimes, a particular new skill just looks good. Personally, I thought Warding was excellently designed, fixing a whole bunch of issues with the current game all at once. Even someone who's not particularly interested in a new skill for its own sake might be interested in a particular new skill if it looks good to them.
The issue isn't that people don't have legitimate reasons for wanting a new skill. The issue is that you are unable to comprehend that other people don't have identical opinions to you.

1. Do you not remember the Inferno? ToB? CoX? That's what generates actual hype for the game. Twitch was booming at the time. When they added Fossil Island, do you not remember how little anyone gave a nubnub? Hell, I still don't even know what's in there lol. The only time I've visited it is for DSII. I paid someone to do the quest "Bone Voyage" for me.
2. We can add new content in a variety of ways.
3. Same. Now we're getting somewhere. I just spite voted it, because I felt the skillers deserved it after how brutally they treated the PKing community for years. Also, they love to sit around and flame anyone who's even remotely competent at the game.
The people who were in support of warding literally had zero reason for supporting it. Most of them didn't even have 1.3k total and were crying about how there's no content to do when they can't even do any of the worthwhile content. I was initially in support of it, but I changed my stance at the last second after seeing how repulsive our community had gotten. These were the same people who voted to keep 6 hour afk in a survey. That's as close to botting as you can get.voting no to any new polled skill
I quess im just at that point in game where im satisfied with everything i got. I could git gud and learn to speedrun tob, but why? i dont need money. I got basically every buyable skill banked. After maxing out i see no reason to continue playing. Im not live streamer that gets paid to repeat same old shit over and over again.

I think you're referring to efficient ToB, not speed running. Two completely different things, my nubnub. Speed running is when you go for PB's which consists primarily of purposely planking 9 times out of 10 if not enough specs land on maiden or something. You make several extremely risky moves and don't care if you die as long as it's at the end and not much DPS is lost. Efficient ToB is where the goal is to make money and not to go for world record times.
Let's apply this to CoX as well. In CoX, speed runners buy 10m scouts and such to go for the global best times. Does this seem like a feasible approach if you're trying to make money?voting no to any new polled skill
