Harsh and unjustified, I would say.
Surely there is a difference between expressing your immediate opinions on an internet chat group and carefully considered well-edited published prose? I have never felt that Jim has a problem putting his ideas over in a way that I can understand - even where I have disagreed with what he has been saying. On his own admission, he can be a bit hasty in what he says when his spirit is up - but I would feel that if Jim were to take a good editor's advice (and that is what they are there for) then he would have a life's work story to tell in a book that I would find interesting to read.
