I do not need your permission to quote statements you make in a public forum
(see below), especially small snippets that easily fall within the bounds of
Fair Use.  If the laws of Australia differ in this regard, you are free to seek
my extradiction to your country for trial.

I have long sinse given up attempting to influence your opinion on anything
whatsoever, even with facts.  Therefore I don't feel terribly reponsible
for your opinion of my ethics; you will apparently reach whatever
conclusions you desire without the complication of any actual data.

it's not a matter of alienating authors. they have every right to
license their software however we like.

But as you said, you don't care.
