Who is the troll here? I seem to remember Ciarán doing quite a bit of good work for Free Software, particularly with regard to resisting software patents, and that benefits everyone with an interest in the field regardless of whether they prefer copyleft licensing or not.
Alongside the "I'm right, you're stupid" tone in recent discussions by the usual practitioners, it's precisely this kind of mud-slinging that is making this site less interesting to participate in. If you want to discuss the merits of any licensing change without coming across as "rabid" yourself, go right ahead, but please leave the childish labelling out of it.
It will be a sad day indeed when LWN joins various other sites in the gutter of name-calling and insult-littered argument. Please don't hasten its journey there.
