The FSF has decided that this is where it wants to draw the boundary for giving permission to combine GPLed software in a collective work without requiring that the rest of the collective work be bound by the GPL.

This has got to be one of the dumbest threads I've read in quite a
while. No a single word of any lawsuit filed by the SFLC has ever. in
the total history of the SFLC, been perused by the eyes of a U.S.
federal court judge. Ignore the GPL and code as you please. Should the
SFLC file suit against you, simply file an *Answer to Complaint* with a
blanket denial of all allegations. Filing this *Answer to Complaint*
prevents a default judgment and places the burden on the SFLC to move
forward with their suit. In order to move forward the GPL would
necessarily have to be interpreted by the court. The SFLC will NEVER,
NEVER allow this to happen -- they might be charged with involuntary
manslaughter if the judge died from laughing too hard before he managed
to stuff the GPL in the little round file bin.
