I think it's better to give users the rope they want than to try
and prevent them from hanging themselves, since otherwise they'll
just use the power cords as ropes and electrocute themselves.

Now I’ll say it publicly: I formally object to any attempt by OSI
to pretend that the current list of “recommended licenses” has any
value or validity, and I request that you NOT patch it by putting
useless explanations around it. Please start a meaningful community
process to develop license selection guidelines and explanations of
the differences among licenses, and leave the politics and biases
on the cutting room floor.
— Lawrence Rosen
