Ok so yourself and Jon are at odds here. Perhaps you could reread the
statements I made:

GPL2 | GPL 3 != BSD | MPL.

Have I been mis-communicating here? (....my pathetic spelling/grammar aside..;-)
Point taken as to the creators wishes...but I do not believe this has
anything to do with his desires and or "coolness".

No where have I advocated "shouting" , nor have I promoted "in your
face confrontation".
No where have I made a statement that would indicate that I want to
carry a flag on behalf of a copyright holder.
