I believe there are 5 phases of appreciation of Ringo:
1 - first discover the Beatles, love the seemingly simple melodies and beats
2 - get told Ringo sucks compared to great rock drummers that have cool solos incorporated into their songs
3 - accept/wonder if it is true, defend him best you can, have many doubts yourself
4 - continue listening to hidden complexities in his drumming, begin to believe again he is "good"
5 - laugh off criticisms from non-Beatle fans, know his skills expertly match what was needed within the band
Style is everything, Ringo was likely never asked to shine and can you imagine a different style of drumming on Beatles tracks?
