For fannish goodwill? Someone else in this thread and the secret itself have already suggested the reason: the choices the show makes are relatively minor so they don't alienate the general audience, but still scores points with the smaller portion of the audience that does care about these issues.

Shows deliberately make little nods and references that only a small portion of their audience pick up on all the time. Ever heard of Easter eggs? In jokes? Sight gags? According to your reasoning, none of those things would ever happen.

That's a good point.

I'm mainly trying to figure out where the cynicism of people complaining of pandering begins and ends. It doesn't come naturally to me. :p

Maybe it's my personal interpretation of the secret, but I thought OP was objecting to the fact that the show is scoring points without actually delivering very much. So, in a sense it's "pandering", but without much substance.
