I will agree with you that there are too many pre-1950 players on the list. But not to the extent that you would like to dismiss them.

Basically most voters here look at the pre-1950 players much as you look at Russian player. If we has a list of say 7 or 8 more Russians replacing pre-50 players, the outrage would be pretty much like your own.
