In what way does that diminish the original? If you don't like the idea, just don't go see it, or rent it, or download it.

It diminishes the original by preventing it from being seen. When a remake is made, it's the remake that is usually shown on television, instead of the original. It gets replaced.

For example, my TV listing says The Ten Commandments (1956) was on twice in the past few days. I was looking forward to it. But, no, it was the crappy remake from 2006. I don't know how many times I've tuned it to The Four Feathers to find out it was the sappy Heath Ledger version (although, to be fair, my favorite version from 1939 is also a remake).
