Bitching over GPLv3?

The only bitching I see is from people that refused to join in on it in the first place. I mean it would be different if they joined in and became disillutioned about it and dropping out and THEN complaining. Then it would have a meaningfull impact.
Said people have repeatedly stated that they objected to the whole "anti-DRM" idea well before the whole GPLv3 process started. They have had rows with RMS (and the FSF) for ages. Why should they now forget all that and just run with the crowd, expecting to be listened to this time around?
