I don't begrudge the man his desire to promote the project he founded. I just wish he had found a way that wasn't offensive, tasteless, confusing, and assinine to do it. He's a bullheaded guy and that's a trait we all needed him to have, but it's too bad he doesn't have the wisdom to consult others on his presentation.
As for bullheadedness on "GNU/Linux" damaging GPL3 chances, I really doubt that one. He gained some minor dents in his goodwill from the Linux crowd (a big one), but the license is really going to be adopted or rejected on its merits (or perceived merits) and not on its creator.
