Bruce made no legal "demands"

Bruce's demands are outrageous. He did license his code as GPLv2 *or* later.
Go back and read Bruce's messages. He made no "demands", only requests that his wishes be accorded some courtesy—at least with respect to the code that he wrote. Bruce explicitly said:
However, it's free software, and Rob has
the right to do what he did. You, however, might want to think twice
before you go along with this strangeness. [emphasis added]
(Over and over again, I see the fallacious argument that if you don't legally require something, you are somehow wrong to request it, feel strongly about it, or to try to persuade people of it.)
