So your reference is an isolated informal opinion in a web log with
the conclusion "So there are some arguments for assuming an (at least
inferable) closing of a contract in the grant of a permission of use
-- even under the GPL."

Wow.  Talk about extrapolation.  Anyway, your "plonking" does not seem
to work very reliably.  Maybe you should sue the author of your Usenet
reader "Mozilla" for not upholding his part of your mutual contract.
