That's correct, but the license does not allow you to abandon the user
to quite that degree.  You are obliged to tell the user the rights
they have with the software.  You are not obliged to support them, but
if you give them a copy, the GPL establishes a postive obligation on
you to tell them all the license requirements that apply.
