The fans don't matter too much in the great scheme of things [In reply to] Can't Post

What about the casual fans and the people who are only tangentially interested in The Hobbit? The people who haven't read the books, and whose only foray into Middle-earth was through Jackson's films? These people probably don't even know where the LotR films were shot, and let alone do they follow the daily developments on TORn and get worked up over funding woes and union boycotts. Casuals aren't going to know about the filming location much less care about it. These people comprise the majority of viewers. In comparison to these masses, what the fans want is just not relevant in the eyes of the Warners. If they can produce the film more cheaply and safely in another country, they will ignore the voices of the fans and do just that. Come on... you know you're going to see it, no matter where it's shot.

It might be a 'major PR disaster', but such a 'disaster' will be confined to a small group of Tolkien and Jackson fans who will almost certainly pay to see the films anyway. If I were Warners I wouldn't exactly be whimpering in fear at this prospect. The unions, however... now they are in for a PR catastrophe if The Hobbit moves, because it will have been their fault.
