Possibly we should change mailing list, but could you explain more?

I agree that there can be good reasons to avoid open core projects: the
open core part might not be adequately maintained, it might be
prohibitively hard to reimplement non-open core features, etc.  But none
of these are reasons why open core projects are not DFSG-free.
