I made an assessment of the license's traits.  I have no idea who
wrote the license, and made no comment about that person's (or those
people's) actual knowledge.  To quote myself:

  "The license shows many signs of being written by someone with just
  enough knowledge to be legally dangerous."

Regardless of the actual subject of my quote, I do not think it is an
insult to remark that someone is not an expert in matters of law.
Even lawyers specialize, and a family law practitioner may not be
particularly well-versed in IP or contract law.
