As for the safety aspect of it all, I think it's a bad argument. It's always going to be an arbitrary thing, cause the same people who now scold the ones who say quali should have been on, are still presumably F1 fans who are ok with cars going 300 plus kph in dry conditions a few metres away from spectators behind fences. It's really just a matter of the degree to which you accept danger. The safety of the cars today is such that sitting in one may be the only way surviving falling of for instance the golden gate bridge. If you say they shouldn't run now in the wet you're pretty much saying they shouldn't have ran F1 at all until about the year 2000. It's all arbitrary and rediculous to attack people on for 'wanting to see accidents'. I just want to see the top drivers in the world in conditions that give them a chance to fully display their skills. It's what sport is about really.
