That's because as soon as defendants threaten to maintain that line of
reasoning in the upcoming filing to the court (dismissal on the grounds
of utterly defective pleading aside for a moment), SFLC immediately
files a notice of voluntary dismissal and runs out of court to avoid
judicial scrutiny of the GPL (and the complaint itself).


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
