That's just not the case

I've seen very few such comments.
There were some (very valid) comments like that at the start when Linus shocked us with his statement (to a popular business magazine) that GPLv3 would not let him use GnuPG to encrypt his diary.
But Linus' comment have been getting more and more specific. Draft 2 responded to some of his DRM comments (although not to his satisfaction, as he said to the mainstream media within an hour of Draft 2's release). Sometimes it's still hard to understand the point of some criticisms, especially when the criticisms are made to the press instead of on the gplv3.fsf.org forum which would attach the comment to an actuall word/sentence/section of the licence.
But the quality of criticism is increasing, so they should be easier to address.
