What does それほど責められることではないはずだ。 mean?

What does 「それほど」mean?

Full paragraph:

まだ短い付き合いだが、ティナはとても素直で優しい子だ。今まで辛く当たっていたリリアに対しても友達として付き合ってくれる。それを考えるだけでも底抜けなお人好しだろう。それが欠点でもあるだろうが、それほど責められることではないはずだ。

I think it means "to that extent".

So, "I don't think she should be criticised to that extent for the flaw of being too kind." Or something like that.

Why is it being used in this sentence? Wouldn't it make more sense just to exclude 「それほど」?

Also, is 「人好し」an insult or a compliment?
