I think when it comes to this subject there are a lot of fans of the show who are very vocal about the negative aspects of the showrunner job (of both Moff and RTD) yet the praise that is due is often either non existent, dismissed or shouted down. When it comes down to it though I am sure both have given the show as much care and attention as they possibly can and there will always be fans who arent happy. Moffat will obviously make a show that he wants to see because before he had the job, he was a regular 'Joe Fan' like the rest of us. People seem to forget that it is in his best interest to make this show as brilliant as he possibly can. His job is a privilege and not a right, after all.

What I often find is that the negative people are often shouters. The more they want people to come over to their views, the louder they shout, which often makes it seem like there are more people feeling the same way than there actually are. This is usually because they have nothing to back their claims up, they just want to be negative. Sounds stupid, but there are lots of people out there in fandom who just like to cause trouble. (im really not explaining this too well!)

On the other hand, I have read some negative comments that, while I dont agree with them, they are well thought out and presented and I am more inclined to read and take notice. Many people want to force their views on you and instead of giving well thought out arguments, bombard you with their nonsense until you agree or give in. This can also be true of the positive people who want you to like everything that they do. Fandom is a crazy beast, but it will never change.
