I went and checked it out today... doesn't look like anyone's used it to comment on ExI's website so far. From the very familiar set of author's names found in the "Messages posted in the last 28 days" list, I get the feeling crit isn't being heavily used yet. One problem might be how slowly it runs. Not sure why all the lag, but it took a while to get through just a few pages. Might be frustrating for people looking to use it.
