As much as I hate Abrams... (He has made a boat load of money with Star Trek.)
Is the bit in parentheses an explanation for the preceding part ?

Ah, no. Not so much...
And that's your opinion. Objectively it seems to be doing fine. And in terms of story, it's entirely subjective whether one thinks a story is good or not.

Then why does the movie going public still attach a stigma to it?
I don't think there's a stigma at all. And there's 400 million+ reasons why I think so.
1) Just giving credit where credit is due.
2) Yes, opinion... on this board and else where the jury is still out.
3) Yes there is still a stigma attached to Star Trek. (See also "Nerds".)

Hope that clears things up somewhat.
We're Star Trek fans, weird is just part of the job.
