Granted, I just glanced over the links, I may be wrong, but I think that is the difference. You did have "shill" in the title, and although you did quantify it a bit in the article, you got everyone's hackles up. 3 of the 4 links are also links to other articles, people were not able to respond directly to the author.
Folks are on razor's edge these days, so many things that we, the "awake," put our trust in only to be burned... Some of us are VERY cautious and slow to "get behind" anyone or anything. Taking a "wait and see" position is somehow being equated with being a shill (not in your post, it is the general sense I get from "the supporters.") Everyone's nerves on edge, ready for a fight they don't really want, and you pulled out the "s" word... I think that is why you are getting hammered now.
