Criticizing Captain Morgan is pretty lame... It was the first arc and very short. Davy Back was by far the lamest.
dont really like the arc before grandline cept nami's
the arc in grandline is okay okay(hate little garden)
water7 and enies lobby DAMN EPIC
and the rest is okay okay again
just my opinion
Except Mwk vs Zoro, I hated every damn arc in east blue. But back then I was just watching the anime, so was no big trouble for me. Though some of the fights was very good.
I liked the davy back fight actually. Except the captains fight, I thought it was pretty damn hilarious. That kind of SHs intervention, especially that of Zoro and Sanji did I miss in the past arc (summit war arc).
Anyway, the worst arc for me was the flashback of Luffy and Ace, in which Sabo and Dadan was introduced. I stopped reading OP for a couple of weeks, that was one hell of a torture. Second after that I hated the TB arc. It seemed horrible idiotic to me, at least the first couple of chapters. As soon as the fightings begun, I felt like reading OP again.
But now rereading everything, I realise every arc makes OP to what it is now. The best manga out there. Even if there is a arc which u might hate, in the end as a complete story it completes itself very fine. Oda knows what he is doing.

I feel like it would've been better to include more options in your poll, since some people might've had other arcs they liked the least. Out of the four you had though, I voted Thriller Bark. That and the Captain Morgan arc were among my least favorite, though TB was worse because of its length. Baratie arc was similar, both suffered from fatigue (styles were too 'standard'), but I put Baratie slightly higher because it was shorter.
Other than that, Captain Morgan was a bit above both of them, for the pace at the time it wasn't too bad -- mediocre but also short. It got the job done (establish characters) then got out.
Definitely the worst arc to me is "Davy Back Fight Arc".
This one mark my longest OP-suspended
The arc got no meaning and just makes me don't feel like reading OP... for some couples of month
I hated the anime version of the war at marinford. It's the only arc where they make luffy look like complete crap and they took Oda's awesome war and made it less interesting. They took a gigantic bucket of emo crap and poured it all over the arc.

I personally disliked the Skypia arc. Enel was the only good thing in that arc IMO.
Davy Back fight wasn't very funny or very interesting to me. But on the whole I think the manga has just been getting better and better, so I doubt I'll have too much more to complain about
Unfortunately the cake went to Morgan... a great Arc... the competition was just too great...
And I love Davy Back Fight... I can't understand people who do not enjoy it... they have to be dead serious for not liking such a comedy arc.
I'm actually surprised some people hated that Captain Kuro Arc. I thought it was actually a really good arc and it was a perfect introduction to Usopp.
It's not Usopp that is bad, it's Kuro. Compare to Baratie and Arlong parc, I find the story much weaker. It's really a part that I don't enjoy rereading.
Even davy back fight that so many people dislike is real fun to reread. The groggy ring is excellent and Foxy is a top gag character.

I think the worst arc is the davy back fight arc, but tbh I've never read it. I've watched and read the series many times, and I still dunno what exactly happened in that arc except wotans, afro luffy, and some stupid ass villain.
Davy back fight!! more like filler. more to comedic arc.
To be honest... I hated the Thriller Bark Arc and I HATED Brook... I mean I really hated his character.. He was just, an awful character... Somehow I actually like him now though... But I still wanna spit on Moria..
I liked Perona
I liked the appearance of Kuma
I love what Zoro did for his captain
I hated Moria
I was disgusted by Hogback & Absolam (he's a border-line rapist)
Oars was okay
To this day, I still don't know if I like Nightmare Luffy
But to be perfectly clear... the reason it suffered the most it came after the CP9 saga... that is a ridiculously hard act to follow... It wasn't until the Strawhats were utterly defeated that I was able to enjoy the manga (that was one hell of a curve ball)
