Expressing them is fine. Repeating them over and over and over and
over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over
and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and
over ... is unnecessary. Really, by now the regulars here all know
what you think about various licenses and, frankly, we don't care to
hear about it any more.
Please try and find something more constructive to do.
