But you did later on ;)
Yes, because I thought adding some inputs about hosting does make sense as OP seems not directed properly.

Not everyone knows how to do this. Managing WordPress is more than just keeping things up to date, and for some website owners, they don't have time to learn or understand that concept.
Yes, agree. But for them there are managed wordpress hosting and managed web hosting services. Which is a better way to get things working. Price seems to be big concern even for people who do not have time. As they want cheap, best and also management which happens only in dreams. Some will think they can pay $5 per month and get end to end management , which is not possbile. It will be complete burnout for the service provider.

The other issue...many WordPress "gurus" will tell people to setup a WordPress website, and not tell them or give them any advice about security or even updates. As long as they get the affiliate income, that's as far as they go with being helpful.
True, but how many consumers are aware of affiliate marketers and how many care to learn or listen to you and me. Who may say that affiliates makes no sense to you at the end of the day. They will pitch only until selling the host packages, but they are not the one who walks with you in your journey?

In my experience, I have seen customer who argue most than listening to people who say truth.

For example, there were cases, people asked us to show us how to do something on cpanel. We made video screencast for such people and spent more than 2 hours to make and send them exclusive video for use case. The result, the person asked us, never used or learnt from the video and finally asked us to do the work ourselves.

And you will laugh, it is just adding a addon domain on cpanel and hosting multiple websites on cpanel. Now, if customers are like this, even the most or best hosting company who care for customers will think.......

So there are cases as such.. There are some kind of customes, who cannot even learn even if you make it super simple. Though you may not have encountered such events till date, but we have seen sorts of customers. And these customers, want cheapest price, they will ask support that will cost company too much than what they pay.

Apart from these, they still compare that there is XYZ company who have more features or pricing, without even using the so called XYZ company... lol..

Seen all sorts of people over the years. We still help out as much as possible to keep customer satisfaction, but I am just sharing somethings that happened in real life.

I agree with many things you said...and when you think of past real situations, some of it leaves you wondering what just happened :)

What's sad...in many forums, there are people who will passionately argue against Managed WordPress hosts. The problem...in some cases they're right and wrong. There's two kinds of WordPress hosts, and two kinds of customers.

Host 1, a WordPress host who setups cPanel...might use Cloudlinux and a few other additions, create cPanel packages, and call it WordPress hosting. They will also sell DNS, emails, and everything associated with cPanel, not realizing some RAM is lost just running cPanel (if it's a VPS), but a lot more has to be done to make it fly.

Host 2, a WordPress host who doesn't use cPanel, and only installs what needed for WordPress. All other services that are not needed are used from either a separate service or company like emails. The use a customize setup to achieve quicker loading times for WordPress. They also focus on all the elements involved like security, whereas Host #1 needs to be told what to do.

Now, we get into Customer 1 and Customer 2.

Customer 1, uses WordPress, wants a $5 account, and wants $50,000 worth of services for that $5. We have all mentioned this story :) These customers will not know what to do and then blame the host when things go wrong, even if the customer did something to create that issue.

Customer 2, uses WordPress, will pay for a $50 account, and understands that the $50 account will not only give them a good nights sleep, but will also help their business or hobby reach more potential customers or users by not loading slow or being down. Some of these will admit to not being knowledgeable, which I will go further with one of your points.

One of my clients laughs about this all the time. She listed complete instructions about her events on her website, which led to people emailing and calling her asking questions...to the same questions she already answered. Just human.

Now ironically with her, she and a few others asked to not have an administrator account in their own website because they fear doing some thing to break it. They have no issues asking myself or others to manage certain elements of the website for them....and with her, she admits that her tech knowledge is emails and facebook. That's it. A few other clients have said this too. They only have so many hours in the day to manage their business and then spend time with their family, so learning how to manage their website, they're not interested and have no problems paying to have it managed.

Real life is all we can go by...and after a while we know which providers will stay up all night to make sure the customer is happy, and which ones just don't care...or gave up :)

If your wordpress is not optimized it can be slower on dedicaded servers too, but you should optimize your Wordpress also optimize the VPS also check their node maybe is full with servers and its laggy. Contact them too.
