But why anyone wants long slow glass that costs a fortune is beyond me and most shooters I know.

The fact that the 2.8 is much heavier, much more expensive and not everyone wants a lens to use wide open could possibly have something to do with its appeal.

Or perhaps potential buyers are just stupid?

Speaking for the UK ( ) - a little puzzled about the seemingly small price saving vs. the 2.8.

E.g. Amazon UK prices for lens (incl value added tax); collar price from Nikon's price list:-

F2.8 VRII                             = GBP 1550
F4 GBP 1234 + collar GBP 150 = GBP 1384

Could suggest to even the (allegedly) indolent to do a quick dumbbell price search
