GNU, GPL, Open Source "A new analysis of licensing data shows that not only is use of the GPL and other copyleft licenses continuing to decline, but the rate of disuse is actually accelerating." This shouldn't be surprising. The GPL is complex, and I honestly don't blame both individuals and companies opting for simpler, more straightforward licenses like BSD or MIT-like licenses.

So I have to ask... Do you troll professionally, or is this just a hobby?

I know you weren't talking to me, but:

I have an allergic reaction to stupid people who think market cap is real value, or people who think people willingly entering a contract is "forced" to abide by the rules of the contract.

Ahhh. Now I remember you.

Fair enough - my "allergic reaction" comment back then was over the top and I apologize. Touché.
