My biggest issue with GPL3 is that it allows relicensing to AGPL-3. So, people can just take my code and decide to give it to others (or back to me) under more restrictive terms. I don't like that.

A reason for choosing GPL2 was that if I license stuff under GPL, everybody else must distribute it under that license, and cannot add further restrictions and thus prevent me from incorporating their changes.
