I don't think you understood what I was saying, and I'm not spreading fud.

You can fork a BSD project and never release the code, even if you're not the copyright holder.

Either way you can't retroactively "change" a license. You can fork originally BSD'd code but the original code is still BSD, thus still "open source".

And if you're going to just tell me that you can't "close source" something at least explain why. You complain about FUD but you don't do much to stop or combat it other than tell someone they're wrong. Explain why they're wrong and help them understand a little better, so they don't inadvertently start spreading FUD.

Exactly. The original source code cant be closed. Closing forks isnt the same closing the code.
