The community definitely does seem to prefer the detailed over realistic, not that the castle was realistic to start with.
This, however, should not make a difference! Even if it's true ( which it's not), Why should you care what other people think? Through this we come back to your point, blue. Lego is art. Art is whatever you make it.
I think everyone should be able to build and post without fear of scrutiny and people telling them what they should be doing or should have done. That is not to say that constructive criticism should not be allowed but I have seen instances where people have commented telling people what they SHOULD have done. Now I know this is the Internet but as Blue said, everyone who posts has real feelings and if someone posted a moc which was small and "plain" then I don't believe people posting saying they find certain aspects "boring" helps encourage. Some people it might make them add more detail etc but others it might actually discourage them from posting
In my opinion, if you're discouraged from sharing your work just because you get an occasional, "this part seems a little boring" comment, then that's on you for being oversensitive. I mean, it would be one thing if people were giving scathing reviews, but generally the community here seems to be extremely encouraging and positive, even with their critiques.
