Wow … I’m not entirely sure what this topic was originally about … but I am 100% sure it has gone wildly off that topic …
There was an appallingly bad Kickstarter campaign I was responding to, but since it's their first campaign, I didn't want to kick them around by naming them, but they were hitting all the classic mistakes.

In any case, in a grand irony, it turns out my dad was one of the campaign's handful of backers, so I guess I will be seeing the resulting book if it ever actually delivers (I remain skeptical on that score).

So, avoid Kickstarters with more than one of the OP's examples?
I constantly see people complaining that most of the campaigns they back fail. I've had two or so fail out of more than 60 backed. If I see any of those red flags, I don't back the project. I'm both a prolific backer and a cautious one.

I've only had a single failure -- cult of personality person who used a social movement to launch his career and abuse people.
