You mean perhaps because Eric Raymond is an evangelistic self-promoter
who doesn't really care about Free Software, but rather just his own ego
and popularity and is willing to sell his soul to Corporate America
trying to convince them that he and he alone has the answer to the One
True Path to destroy the Evil Empire, even if it means replacing it with
another one?

Or because he's already compromised almost all of the real meaning of
what the DFSG was supposed to stand for out of the OSD?

I could go on, but ... nah.
