You are certainly entitled to your opinion. However, I take exception to 
statements like "you need to get more sleep". This is my opinion and I
stand by it. Also, in the event you think our worry (My employer) is based
on "gpl police" - whatever or whoever you think they are, you are mistaken.
But, then again, the nature of our concerns are not yours - you don't
even know what the nature of our business is.

When I made the assertion that started this thread, you and others challenged 
me to produce reasonable and plausable documentation to back up my statement.
I did. Therefore, I challenge you to provide the same type of documentation 
stating that I have no worries. I could await your post, but unless the fsf 
changes the licensing right now - I'd be waiting for something you cannot 
possibly produce.

Also, FWIW, I wish I had never started this thread. I should have kept it to 
myself and avoided the grief. My days of posting to this list are over. 
People like you make it a big pain in the ass.
