The Curious Case Of The Mountainous Molehill (was Re: A new practical problem with invariant sections?)

you people love to recycle the same lies over and over and over again.
i'm becoming convinced that it is a deliberate strategy - repeat the
same lies and eventually everyone will just give up out of exhaustion.

you can do the same with GFDL documents. e.g. the stupid coffee cup
example so popular with you zealots - if you can't fit the invariant
sections on the cup itself, then print it on paper and include it in the
box. "problem" solved.

for some reason, though, you zealots ignore that inconvenience, or treat
it as free for the GPL and other licenses, but consider it beyond the
pale and non-free for the GFDL.

the GFDL has a similar provision.  you can provide a link to an internet
address containing the full document.
