Got it now?

No, of course not. Daniel Wallace and you are both people who
deliberately choose to misinterpret the GPL for your own purposes.
Naturally, courts see through such flimflam, and no amount of
blustering on the internet can counter that.

GPLv2 says
    Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights
    or contest your rights to work written entirely by you;
    rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the
    distribution of derivative or collective works based on the

    In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on
    the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
    Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium
    does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.

It is clear, therefore, that GPLv2 distinguishes between mere
aggregations and collective works which are not mere aggregations,
so repeatedly claiming that it does not is foolish.
