The message to which *you* were referring was a brief recapitulation, by
me, of a longer and more comprehensive analysis, also by me, in
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2003/debian-legal-200304/msg00294.html>.

If you don't share my position, that's fine, but you haven't yet
articulated why.  Please address the arguments in
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2003/debian-legal-200304/msg00294.html>
so that I can understand your perspective, and so that I can think of
some grounds other than contrarianism for people on this list to feel
that my position shouldn't be representative of the group.  (I am
accustomed to people hollering when I forward an argument that people
find objectionable, which didn't happen in the case of
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2003/debian-legal-200304/msg00294.html>.)
