If you don't like people taking your hard work, make your tree private. Everyone is entitled to create their tree however they want. It's their tree, not yours, not anyone else's. They do not exist to help other researchers - while they can accomplish this sometimes, that it not their purpose.

Stop worrying about other people's trees and just work on your own. If other people have errors in their tree, that's their problem, not yours. Why do you care so much what is in other people's trees? Because it makes finding accurate information from them more difficult? Genealogy is all about taking conflicting information and sorting out the good info from the bad - if you don't like doing that, don't do genealogy.

"And for you guys that would remove your trees if it were to be critiqued by your peers,, what does that say about you and your work? "

It says that I don't give a crap what other people think of my tree so I have no interest in other people "rating" it. I work on my tree, not other people's trees, and it's no one else's business what is in my tree. Don't like what's in my tree? Unless you're going to *politely* offer to collaborate instead of criticizing my tree like you're entitled to fix it, then keep your nose out of it and in your own tree.
