Of course, there's always the possibility that the preview itself is poorly constructed.

just wasn't very well constructed and failed to show the work to its best advantage.

And then there are the cases where the advance word results in a large amount of complaining. Tainted By The Preview covers all those instances where the would-be audience for something yet to come out immediately decides it detests something about it, based on a preview, and starts complaining about it. Vociferously.

Mind you, they have no idea whether or not yet it's actually worthy of complaint--the project in question might be over a year away. This doesn't matter to them; they need to proclaim immediately that the project in question is DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER.

Fortunately, it's comparatively easy for anything getting this reaction to be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap--all it has to do is be better than people expected (which, given how low the expectations tend to be, not that difficult). Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for the first impression to be the right one.
