I'm gonna do something bold, and omit a few points from my argument. I won't count these against Ash:
-Still 10 Years old (there's little chance of him again; never has, likely never will)
-Never won a Pokemon League (give the guy a break; even though he came so close to the finals, there's obviously going to be regression in future leagues)
-His current voice actor (come on y'all, it's been 7 years, let it go.)
But for most of my opinion, I'm inclined to agree on regression. Much, much regression. Taking a step back in his progress; not to mention most of his prior development down the drain. I'm surprise Dawn picked up some of Ash's strategies and he hasn't used much of them in the current saga. And she's not a dominate battler. Then again, his battling hasn't been too shabby in BW; especially in the Tag Team episode. But I digress.
Ash isn't what he use to be back in the day, that's for sure. Some people will see him different; depending on their prior viewing of the show or not.
When I refuse to do anything productive. Lazy arse.

Not that I condone bashing Ash or anyone else, but I can sort of understand why people may not like him. I mean the guy barely ever developed as a character and just when he had finally gotten to the point where he was maturing (DP), the writers went and took all that development from him and made him regress instead (BW). It's difficult to like a character who only changes for the worst. That's why I'm personally not here for Ash any more. I gave him more than a decade to impress me, but he failed to live up to my expectations.

Probably because he's basically little more than a self-insert for kids.

Basically, it comes down to opinions and just how far people take things. Some people can't deal with characters and will sometimes get too excessive with their dislike. Pretty much anything about a character is up for dislike and as such can be taken too far and then get bashed. Despite the bashing, Ash is still liked by many, he's just not going to be able to avoid any hate(And by extension, bashing). It happens with every character(In and out of Pokemon), there's no such thing as an universally liked character(Or disliked) and as such opinions are going to be brought up, and as I said, some people take it too far.
