Actually it wasn't even true then.

The gaming news sites misinterpreted what a single developer said on a forum somewhere. They were talking about the number of users accessing the multiplayer servers at a specific time. It had nothing to do with sales and was most likely caused by pirated games being unable to properly connect to the multiplayer server.

The game actually sold pretty well for a PC game:

Especially for an RTS that really didn't get a whole lot of press before it was released...

EDIT: Other than that, the list in the OP was pretty accurate. That's some damned irritating stuff and I do my very best to avoid every single one of those screw-jobs...
