People bash GNU for a variety of reasons, but no one in this thread has shown that they actually know why GNU believes that it is within their right to ask for credit. They merely repeat a laundry-list of what they've heard others say, because bashing ideas is a lot safer and rewarding to one's ego than coming up with new ones.

Very well said. It also seems to me there are a lot of persons (for various reasons) who'd rather just shoot the messenger than debate the ideas.
