    Big difference with Tom saying "Thor can not summon mjolnir" (despite numerous showings to the contrary, including by Stan Lee, the guy who created Thor and Walt Simonson, whom many say is the definitive Thor writer) and your extreme example "if he said Mjolnir can easily destroy Eternity"...there is a middle and sane ground, you know.  No need to exaggerate just to prove your point.

    Anyway, Tom's original statement (Thor can't summon Mjolnir) is akin to a DC editor saying "Magic is an auto-win against Superman"...there are several showings to the contrary, and it will still rub Supes' fanbase the wrong way...Now, how do you feel Dan Jurgens (guy who wrote Thor and Supes) saying he pick Thor (and he has, really) winning over Supes because of magic?

..of course I exaggerated. It was a way to illustrate how Tom being wrong wouldn't trigger the same irrational reaction if it was positive to Thor's image. 

As an aside, I'm really not so sure that what I proposed, and that you thought was ridiculous, would be greeted by all the way you did. If most would recognize Tom exaggeration I think some would refrain from calling him a delusional fanboy for it as easily as they were ready to call him hater for the opposite. 

You were obviously exaggerating...but by doing so, you fail to support your argument.  Saying a ridiculous statement such as "Thor's hammer can easily destroy Eternity" is a flat out invitation for derision from everyone.  It's just too kooky.  While Tom Brevoort's claim that "Thor cannot summon Mjolnir" is a flat out wrong statement, supported by decades of Thor comics.  He is making it up, kind of like how Kurt Busiek (supported by brevoort) made up Thor's allergic reaction to bullets.  Now, in DC they try to make Superman the best Marvel, they try to make hulk the strongest wonders, why Marvel's editor keep on inventing ways to de-power Thor, like the whole bullet-resistant debacle and now, he can't even summon his hammer...hence, people are speculating that they are "haters".  Do i subscribe to that notion...maybe, although i would not go on record...but there are indications to support that idea.
