So people started to discredit anyone who said he could be Obito, because the majority of those people were not supplying any credible evidence. It became anathema to actually think Tobi could be Obito, so everyone started to decide that would be the worst thing ever if it were true. When in reality, it makes the most sense, given all the evidence if you look in further, past the name, the hair, and the eye hole.
except that the timeline is still whack and there is no logical reason for obito to start a war over rin's death. Neither of those have been, nor likely will be, explained logically. Note: *the article was very interesting, and i have to give kishi credit for the subtle hints.
