Adding to this, there are a lot of leftists that diminish any politic that doesn't provide clear answers. For example, Marxists insist anarchism doesn't offer a template for attaining full communism - so that invalidates anarchism in their eyes as 'impractical', 'utopian' (for ancoms) or 'lifestylist' (for anarchists).

Meanwhile, no Marxist has ever achieved full communism, so their expectation for impossible promises is nonsensical. We're not going to promise them perfect lives if they join our special club, because that's not how anarchy (or reality) works.
