Maybe that's because you like to tick the box for no publicity?

Some people like to be credited with their work, but don't want to go
as far as the obnoxious ad clause.  The licence doesn't look stupid
to me, even if the clause may be an unnecessary expression of the
normal situation in most places.

Hmm, that does explain, but seriously I would be concerned as an
author! eg. Someone could take my work and add a splashscreen that
says "Andrew Donnellan is crap" and use it to make an illegal crack
downloading program or something like that. Then they could also claim
that I endorse it...
