What people either keep forgetting or ignoring is that Roddenberry himself rewrote a great deal of the scripts in the first two seasons. Harlan Ellison is the most famous example
I'm pretty sure this was covered upthread; Fontana did the final City re-writes.

while John DF Black apparently left because of it.
Black left because of the way he was treated personally. The story is in the Inside Star Trek book.

but to suggest as some have that Gene "created the series, then sat back and let others do the work while he had sex with actresses" is ridiculous.
He was doing work for sure; but he was also having sex with actresses. This is also covered in the book.
