I read how the prevalence of abnormals and Medaka (Mary Sue) in the story was really annoying them and they wanted to go back to the old style.

Not even the Minus arc entirely allievated haters as it was eventually going to end and it was pretty much a given Medaka was going to somehow win. There are still fans here who want the manga to end and really hate manga for the unsatisyfing conclusion of the arcs in question. Even seeing Medaka herself actually lose to Zenikichi is not enough as the box stopped being relevant to the story.
TBF, "The End" was a pretty cop out ending for the flask plan arc, and Medaka's fight with Kumagawa wasn't that great. So it was true that up til that point the way Nisio had developed her characater made for pretty anticlimatic arc ends, which isn't exactly a great thing.

Though obvious that's not all there is to this story or any story.
