Market. Both OO and RDB are technologies with market products on sale. Between us we can admit shortcomings and problems, but what if customers would hear that? I don't accuse anybody of being hypocritical. Just once anybody gets accustomed to doublespeak it becomes difficult for him to switch back. It is like being confronted by a salesman in a shop. Relax, we aren't to buy anything, just looking around...
P.S. I don't want to appear politically correct. IMO comp.object is less aggressive than comp.databases.theory. People like topmind and frebe aren't excommunicated regardless their propaganda. Does comp.databases.theory have such?
