Excuse me John C,

Have you read the GFDL? Then compared it DFSG? I think not.

Until you understand why those GFDL pieces deemed not acceptable are
that way, please be quiet.

Until you can see BOTH sides of an argument, you cannot win either side
over, nor make a convincing statement for one side or the other.

Please you are not making a good reputation, just one that complains.
