Hah!  If they were genuine GPL discussions, they might be on topic, but
genuine they are not.  You post not to discuss, but to disparage and
libel.  And since when has this sort of stuff been on-topic anywhere:

?  That's pure nastiness, pure bile from a gutless poster, Rjack, who
probably wouldn't say boo to a goose if the goose could see him and
sqwawk back.
