Right on. I'm always amazed when I see comments made about an unfamiliar food or recipe as being gross, awful, doesn't look tasty etc. The only way a recipe or food can be judged as being tasty or "gross" would be to try it.
People the world over have different traditions, they eat different foods than we do. Some of them make fruitcakes covered in marzipan, fondant, or royal icing for weddings instead of North American style cakes covered in buttercream, because its thier tradition. Why do some of us have such a need to mock that difference by saying its gross or awful?
