Oh they're able to grasp it, they just refuse to.

Here, Alex Terekhov's "hobby" is knocking the FSF; he's a pure troll, but
fairly harmless, really.  Hadron is probably a shill for some body with
an interest in spreading FUD about the GPL.  Rjack might be, too.  Hyman
Rosen is different; he reckons he's found a bug in copyright law, based
on a mechanical, pedantic reading of some laws, and he's arguing to try
and find the flaw; a bit like I'm doing.

Maybe one or two of these people want to misappropriate GPL'd code too.
