In defending your position that combining GPL and some other software on 
my computer system was not allowed you cited some statements indicating
that the GPL did not allow putting additional restrictions on users.  

What users are you referring to?  There is only one user of this computer
and it happens to be me.  Your argument makes absolutely no sense which
is of course your right.  What I find amusing though is that once the
absurdity of your argument is pointed out, you attribute the absurdity
to me.
