In reply to: GPL "v2 or later" may prevent merging back modifications? in practice, yes

And yet you yourself have spent much of your time nit-picking Ingo's language
Bull. All through this thread I've tried to stay on-topic regarding whether using "v2 or later" permission opens you up to some vague and terrible legal risks, and whether the FSF is fulfilling these fears with GPLv3 (separate from whether you agree with v3's changes).
Ingo posted exactly once in this thread (so far), and his points were (a) misreading my post to claim that I was not taking the phrase "worst fears" in the context of this permission, (b) making unfounded and irrelevant ad hominem attacks.
And I note that your post made not a single substantive point about the license language. Why are people so intent on changing the subject?
