Why are so many people so quick to suggest that a fish is a hybrid if they cannot immediately identify it from a single photo of questionable quality?

Because finding a pure fish, even if you think you've identified it, is extremely rare unless the fish in question were bought from an extremely reputable breeder.

I don't disagree with you about the difficulty in finding "pure" fish out there. What I am pointing out is that often the quality of the photo is what prevents positive identification in many cases.

Kind of looks like a juvy Bumble Bee (Metriaclima crabro). Definetely not positive on that one though.
