Because they are the ones that need to be reached if things are going to change.  The people on CAF represent the more conservative end of the mainstream Catholic Church, particularly in the USA.  If you want to see things changed at the parish level, they are going to have to be brought on board and get behind the changes.  We know those who dissent on Faith and Morals will probably never be in agreement, but if we can get the majority of the CAF crowd, things can begin to improve. 

Or, as someone else put it a few days ago here on FE, instructing the ignorant is one of the spiritual works of mercy. 

I was being somewhat faceitious. That being said, I would say that many - if not most - of the people who post there can't (or won't) face the facts that there's even a crisis to begin with. You can lead a horse to water...

Many people here on FE were exclusively at CAF before.  It is being exposed to certain things here and there which led me to see more of the reality of our Church and the state she is in.  We now have a Cardinal admitting a crisis.  That is something which can be used to open eyes, in particular since he is typically thought of as a non-traditionalist.
