I don't dislike all American accents - I quite like Eastern Seaboard accents, but not a fan of Interior accents, and am indifferent to a Midwest accent except maybe ones closer to the Canadian border, which I also don't mind. But still won't tolerate any accent where it doesn't fit the context - I can't listen to an American accent in high fantasy, just doesn't work, but at the same time, I wouldn't want a BBC English accent narrating a good cowboy yarn! But even where there is no cultural/language context, I'd rather listen to an English accent (of the BBC sort) as it is less distracting and easier for me to understand.
I can be seduced in five minutes by a Jamaican or Scottish accent - this is a problem of a whole other kind
