Because its fashionable amongst the more douchey hard core dork Trekker set to Shatnerbash for some odd reason. (I think they seem to be from the same odd culture that think Takei is somehow on the same pecking order Trek level as Shatner)...
I love Shatner, and consider him to be a hugely entertaining figure AND I admire the work he has done in Star Trek...
...But I also think he is a goof-ball publicity-whore who likes to say things to get a rise out of people and get mentioned in entertainment articles and message boards -- BUT I still find him likable.
I don't feel those two things are mutually exclusive, and you may call it "Shatnerbashing", but I don't feel I am bashing him, but rather just being realistic about him. He isn't a perfect god and he isn't a despicable jerk. Just like most people, he is somewhere in between.
