The first part is a statement about Emacs, and it's a fine thing to say.

But the parenthetical statement is a personal criticism of some
person or persons.  Do you see what I mean?

I suggest it would have been better to refrain from saying that.  It's
better to refrain from criticizing any person, and talk only about the
topic.  Also, you have a better chance of convincing people that way.
