It's the same reason he acts audibly disgusted whenever someone brings up anime but is secretly a massive weeaboo. That's just how Jeff rolls.

My favorite movie is The Room; I also think The Room is the worst movie ever made.

I figured this just lends credence to the theory that Jeff doesn't hate things, he just hates people liking things.

I actually went and listened to the bit in question.

The part where Jeff says Dota, he is still reading the email. It's not Jeff saying he likes it, it's the person that wrote the email who likes Dota.

I believe Jeff himself has confirmed this position at least once.

That is how I heard it also. It was not Jeff saying he personally liked them, he was still reading the email.

FALSE ACCUSATIONS!

Quick, someone make a video making it sound like jeff saying he likes dota.

I think Jeff actually enjoys the concept of Dota more than he would like to admit. Like myself, I really enjoy some games from a distance - like TF2. I can't even play the game anymore, but I still like spectating match. I was the same way with Dota (and Starcraft II) for awhile - but I finally got bit by the Dota bug hard enough that I've put in a good 75 hrs or so over the past 6-9 months.

Also, Natural Selection is a great game, and the concept is really neat. I can see how spectating that can be fun as well.

Even though this has now been dismissed/debunked/corrected etc I can also say that I think Dota is probably one of the best mods of all time, but damn I don't like Dota.

Appreciation from afar is fine for some people :)
