If discussing the manners in which a license violation can be properly
resolved is to be deemed "putting the Project at increased legal risk",
then I suppose the list should be dissolved.

I do find these personal, repeated attacks to be highly inflammatory
(and so trollishly so that I don't feel responding to them individually
