Sometimes a new card is spoiled and the internet just breaks. Calls for pre-bannings, that a card is going to "destroy the format", a demand to "send WotC a message" ring out across the Commander universe. Most of the time, these are hyperbolic, and things tend to die down once people actually get their hands on cards to play with them a bit. Learning how to evaluate the setup cost of cards can be a good way to help improve your analysis earlier, and could help you spot the combo that's perfect for your deck, or to realize when it's time to pass on the the one that the internet is still hyperventilating over.
