Please don't be so rude...
He was just making a statement of fact, not insulting us, AFAICT.

Ricardo meant (I think) that debian-legal (and the Debian project as a
whole) takes a stance that very few groups (outside Debian) take.
And that seems to be true.
Sad but true.

Please re-read the non-commercial and no-derivatives license elements,
before claiming that Creative Commons is about promoting the freedoms we
(at Debian) care about...

There are other issues in all CC licenses that do not meet the DFSG, but
the two above-mentioned features are really easy to detect and many CC
fans do not object to them.
On the contrary, some CC supporters really like them...  :-( 

    :-(   This Universe is buggy! Where's the Creator's BTS?   ;-)
