...Why does this happen?

I think it happens because few members have studied another version to even know that the KJV  isn't perfect.

For anyone interested, these are two facebook pages where Old and New Testament scholarship is discussed and insight from other translations is offered.

I have enjoyed the English Standard Version, FWIW. Modernized but still scriptural sounding and it incorporates insights from older manuscripts, including the Dead Sea Scrolls (the probably all do this today, but when I compared Deuteronomy 32:8 most translations had the incorrect "children of Israel" rather than the earlier and correct "sons of God").
