Eat it all the time.  LOVE IT.  Normally we get a couple bushells once a month during season and then roast them the leftovers we make stew with.

Half shell raw is good only if they are good oysters,  mainly we put them on a metal screen and put them over hot coals as they slowly open its time to eat up. Cook more or less depending on your liking.  We cook them in the oven, steamer, fire pit, pressure cooker, raw, bout every way imaginable we have cooked oysters.

There was a place up by Haystack near Astoria that the oysters were good tasting raw, but I was drinking in those days.  LOL!

I'm with you guys,  Snot!  I gag every time I see one of those Loogies on a half shell even worse a quart jar of them!  I can and do eat them cooked Clams and Muscles as well. 
 
I just can't get pass trying to chew & swallow something that looks like I coughed it up.

That sounds interesting, burlap huh?  The fresher the better too!
 
When I was a wee pup in Jacksonville, FL I would go shrimping with the grandparents.  Grandma would make a big bowl of this cornmeal concoction and we would putter around in the john boat looking for grassy areas underwater1-3 foot deep.  She would stick a colored stake in the location then drop a fist sized tightly packed cornball in the grass.  We would do this in about 10 places.  wait an hour or two then go back and throw a baitcasting net over the area.  We would fill a 30 gallon thrash can full of nice big fat shrimp in no-time.
Then Grandma insisted we sort them all.  Throwing back egg bearing females and small one.  Then it was feast time!!!!

I love them with Malpeque being my favorite, when raw. For stew I will use what is available.

I like the chincoteague oysters the best for eating on the half shell, they have a mild salty taste to them and with a little hot sauce they can,t be any better. I like oyster cook about every way possible except in dressing for turkeys or chicken. Also here in Va. they have a oyster festival every year the first weekend of Nov. in Urbana which you can have cooked or raw oysters. They close off all streets in the town for the whole weekend and eat seafood and drink beer rite on the street. Always have a great time.

Frequenting the Washington and Oregon coasts, we feast on the tiny but delicious coldwater oysters like Quilcenes. In camp, they just get thrown on the grill until they open and then tossed back.
 
I still have not found the perfect rifle and scope combination for taking them, nor a good ballistics discussion on how far to lead them in the field.

But we can discuss the virtues of Eastern vs. Western.  Much prefer eastern.  Smoother, more mellow taste.

Tastes do differ, though out west we find mellow equates to bland, which seems to defeat the point of oysters!
