Hope that helps a bit.
I don't disagree at all with what you're saying, but I don't see what it has to do with the earlier allegation of 'selective blindness' however. I suspect that those, Linus for instance, that have a real problem with the spirit of the GPL had ample warning and opportunity to omit the 'or later versions' clause, which was explicitly left out of the license itself to permit that, in fact.
I hope you recognise it is worthy of debate even if your point of view is
that "enforcing code sharing" alone is naive/wrong.
I can see a worthy debate on some issues here, but not on whether or not v3 is in the same spirit. That question seems absolutely beyond question.
