Why does LWN continue to get away with it?
Com on. LWN.net doesn't ever distribute its source code; it is an internal product, so even under the GPL they might get away with it.
As to the promise, it may have made sense some years ago, but today our beloved editors might retract their promise and very few people would feel the loss, as stated above.
I am sure even Stallman keeps a closet full of code uglier than a troll's foot that he uses internally and would never release.
