Don’t expect too much logic in a “100 best of all time” list. In order to justify what is essentially a subjective choice, the text (if any) will tend towards advertising copy, full of hype, BS and factoids. FontShop is a retailer, after all. Compare this selection with the book Fifty Typefaces that Changed the World. (I wouldn’t waste my time, but if you are interested in top lists…)
Good point David, which you so ably demonstrated by posting my comment above as off-topic (which I did pay attention to, belatedly—but only because of the nature of this thread!) A tangled web we weave, indeed.
