Carter and de Camp both wrote nasty, hatchet job books "psychoanalyzing" much better writers - men they spent their entire careers ripping off. That's tough for some people to forgive. At least Carter was a decent editor (unlike de Camp, who was a total loss in my opinion).
I like the concept behind the Thogor stories, but as for the execution... well, as a writer, Carter was a pretty good editor. In addition, calling anyone besides Conan "the mightiest sword and sorcery hero of them all" is a pretty brazen falsehood.
