Although, if PHPNuke has javascript (or similar) that is being
executed on the client side, a case could be made that use of phpnuke
on a website is equivalent to distributing it. [If someone is aware of
the FSF or arguments saying otherwise, I'd be glad to hear them.]

America was far better suited to be the World's Movie Star. The
world's tequila-addled pro-league bowler. The world's acerbic bi-polar
stand-up comedian. Anything but a somber and tedious nation of
socially responsible centurions.
