The one-sentence description makes it sound a lot better designed, implemented, and publicized than it ever was.

And that's generalizing the opposition a bit. Some thought it would be used to excessively privelige the views of a small number of people, that it involved inherent conflicts of interest, that Cryptic was really only interested in mouthpieces for them rather than the other way around, etc. And then there were objections to the initial membership, and so on.
