   It's not like this is not written explicitly in Stallman's essay
   that I quoted to you.  And it's not like I have not repeatedly
   explained it.  So how come you still are harping on this "just to
   keep the GPL program free" nonsense?  If that was the aim, the BSD
   license would be quite fine: apart from redistribution efforts,
   software under the BSD license is easy to continuedly support as
   free software.  But the existence of such free software is no
   incentive to create more free software.

The Modifed BSD license doesn't keep software free, so you are simply
spreading misinformation.  It was the exact point of the GPL to keep
something that was free, free.  You will never be able to figure out
what Microsoft did to the BSD stack for example, since they have made
the work non-free; the GPL's sole aim is to see that such things will
_not_ happen.

That you must resort to ad hominem attacks, FUD, and misinformation is
just sad.
