MySQL, one of the most successful commercial ventures to use the GPL, has modified its license terms from 'version 2 or later' to 'version 2' only, according to Kaj Arno, the company's vice president of community.

How exactly is the FSF alienating the community if what it has been doing with the public debate about GPLv3 is engaging the community on the issue of how to better defend itself against attacks on the four kinds of freedom for the software users? Moreover, how is the GPLv3 debate alienating anyone if no one will ever be forced to release their own software projects under GPLv3?

Because the FSF is talking and talking but not listening the feedback, one way communication is not a dialog.
