Claiming that my claim is unverified is very easy, but false. I have

They're *your* unverified claims. Neither myself nor, I doubt, anyone
else is going to foolishly carry *your* burden and produce *your*
"facts" for you.

I leave it to you to convince the 99.999% of the World that holds the opinion contrary to yours.

The sequence of suit-settlement-action is quite convincing. The only
 ones who hold a contrary opinion are the anti-GPL cranks, who cannot
 countenance the SFLC's effectiveness.

The "sequence" you postulate is simply an unverified string of events.
As I stated, you may remain in solipsistic denial forever but
correlation will never prove causation. Reality is often a difficult
thing to face Hyman. You should either produce a verifiable copy of a
settlement agreement or own up to reality -- there has never been a
settlement agreement, let alone *seven* agreements, with respect to the
seven frivolous SFLC lawsuits that have been voluntarily dismissed by
the the plaintiffs.

The central topic of the discussion in this group has always been the
legal enforceability of the GNU GPL adhesion contract. Nothing short of
a *ruling* by a judge in a federal court will establish the legal effect
of the GPL. The SFLC will NEVER, NEVER allow this to happen -- they are
perfectly aware that the GPL is preempted by 17 USC 301(a). The only
hope the SFLC and Free Softies can rely upon is that the gullible public
will believe the logical fallacy that "correlation proves causation".
