I interpret his original message as saying his software if licensed
under a derivative of the GPL that requires an "obnoxious" advertising

It makes the license open to various interpretation as to its legality.

Maybe the license is contradicatory with regard to adding new clauses.

Maybe the license is incompatable with the GPL, for the same reasons that the
original BSD license is.

He opened a can of worms
