I wouldn't stress about comments like that. Most people don't completely understand what is going on. Many people *think* they understand, but don't. Some don't even bother to try to understand and just panic irrationally (as seen on the CentOS discussion list).
You've reported the events as well as anyone could have without having behind the scenes knowledge of the troubles the developers have been facing.
Assumptions of FUD, I can only guess, come from reaching conclusions not evidenced in your article.
