That is not very interesting, because if you are the sole copyright holder, you
do not have to comply with the term of the AGPL and I can see how restricting
what others can do with your code could be an advantage to you.

Would you settle for a non-detailed rebuttal limited to the technical points ?
So far the only rebuttals I have seen involve a free-as-in-beer third-party
VCS hosting service, which does not address my issues (mainly, that it put
obligation on the person which has modified the software long after they
stopped using it and distributing it).
Imagine a large red swirl here.
