That was quite a jeremiad. No doubt, insults and sarcasm are an effective way to avoid a charge of being "ingratiating", but otherwise only have value as personal catharsis, not as "service to the Divine".
You're right there should be sympathy for devotee's feelings that have been hurt, and expressions of that sympathy have been lacking. But devotee's hurt feelings cannot be the only issue of importance. If much of that hurt was caused by erroneous claims about what the book actually says, then there are also issues of devotion to the truth. This book is not a disciple's homage to his master published by an Ashram but an academic biography published by Columbia University Press.
