I think the bottom line is that Craig pissed off the whole sailing world for a long time, then when everyone found out about the skullduggery with the specs, those folks in the sailing world decided that only complete annihilation of the brand would be enough to satisfy them. And now the skullduggery has shifted to them.

Plenty of blame to go around.
You may be right, mad at Craig and took it out on the anchor. I wonder if any other similar anchors have been bent under actual anchoring conditions?
