I think Oncers love the show so much that they want it to be top notch, they want it to succeed and when it falls below those high expectations, they air their displeasure because a show they love is not meeting the high standards they expect or think it has the potential to reach.
For example, Nealfire was a character who had a lot of potential. We liked what we saw of young Baelfire, but as an adult Neal was kind of just there. There were emotional reactions and scenes we wanted to see that we didn’t get such as: Neal confronting Rumple over killing Milah (at least asking if it was true), Neal reacting to Tamara’s betrayal and death (considering he was going to marry her), Neal saying goodbye to Henry, Neal reacting to his father’s death, etc etc. There were a lot of emotional moments that we should’ve got from Neal but we didn’t get.
Another thing that could’ve had potential was OutlawQueen. On paper it sounded interesting but the way it has been handled in show has been completely botched and has only gotten steadily worse. (Regina and Robin were drawn to each other “because pixie dust said so”, Regina wasn’t very nice to Robin in EF but Robin still fancied her anyway for seemingly no other reason than “pixie dust said so”. It turns out Regina murdered Marian so Robin was dating his wife’s murderer. Robin now looks like a complete jerk for ditching Regina, and Regina is plotting to get rid of Marian so she can have Robin all to herself because he’s her “happy ending” even though he ditched her. I find OutlawQueen to be one of the worst written couples on the show.
