ETA: it was interesting to see small changes they made to either "soften" up characters or "harden" them to make their agendas more clear. They removed Cat's brutal "It should have been you" and Sansa's informing Cersei of the Starks' imminent departure from KL. These moves would have been tougher to stomach on TV. Many book readers have never forgiven Cat and Sansa: my guess is that even fewer viewers would have forgiven them.

I'm post-tv reader, and I still remember reading how harsh Cat was to Jon. Had I seen that on the show, yes - you're correct, no forgiveness.
I can't speak for anyone else, but the reason I dislike Cat so much isn't because of Jon Snow (though that didn't help). It's because of Tyrion and Jaime. She basically starts the War of the Five Kings singlehandedly, and then
for purely selfish, emotional, shortsighted reasons. She's really not much better than Lysa or Cersei in that regard.
