STID can't be singled at as being something unique for a perceived "problem" when it's not. Are lot of "problems" or "Trek would never do "X"..." is less problems with the movie and more the fact that some people just don't like the production team.
The video in question is a list of complaints against STID specifically. Just because there have been other questionable melds doesn't mean that this one, done for no reason as Ln X has pointed out, isn't a valid "Sin".

I also want to know why the Enterprise can get to Qo'Nos and back faster than I can get from DC to Manhattan, and why that barren rock McCoy and Marcus landed on had breathable atmosphere, and why Chekov could beam a free-falling Kirk and Sulu and cancel their velocity in ST09, but couldn't beam Khan up here. I'd also like to know why Carol Marcus wasn't killed by running while beaming.

Carol Marcus screaming and running during transport was one of the most compelling scenes of the film. Beaming someone against their will might not be the same kind of violation as a involuntary mind meld, but it's up there.

It also found Spock's meld with Pike to be a non-sequitur. It does play into later events in the film, but at the time, Spock really has no reason to do it, other than morbid curiosity. Perhaps he thought Pike was trying to tell him something. Pike's casting about expressions 'could' be interpreted that way.
