In the last three years, Moglen and Ravicher together have received over
$1,000,000 in compensation from public charitable contributions as S.F.L.C.

You have not provide an instance where after the SFLC ended a
case the source for the GPLed software failed to be provided.

That's right. I'm gonna' let *you* provide the *verifiable evidence* for *your* claims of settlements.

The SFLC continues to file cases on behalf of their clients,
who can therefore be assumed to be satisfied with the service
they are receiving.

Ah yes, "assumed".  "Ass-u-me" will make an "ass" out of "u" and "me".

The SFLC also receives enough money from its settlements that
its attorneys are reasonably well compensated and therefore
want to continue what they are doing.

If you are privy to these "settlements" pray tell post them so all may see and

So everyone involved, except for the code grabbers, is happy.
GPLed sources are made available, code grabbers are chastened,
attorneys are paid. I guess you're unhappy too, but that's just
an extra bonus.

I'm not unhappy 'cause I'm having fun exposing your unverifiable, self-serving claims.
