    No, for a variety of reasons that I've already discussed in this thread, in an nutshell:

    1. BSD developers are not going to stop doing what they believe is the right thing because some people abuse it.

    2. Even if they wanted to, changing the licensig terms of code that dates back to the 70's would be an impossible task.

    All this debate is pointless.

    Coders can use whatever license they want.

    Also this thread belongs to the cafe. It is another GPL vs BSD thread with a different title.

    My mistake. My intention was to say Recurring Discussions.

    But it seems you are to passionate about the subject that you forgot where it belongs.

    Also this thread was reopened with the intention to be on topic. Which is not the case. So it should be closed too.

    Please try not to attempt to be a moderator, it won't work. This is the correct place for the thread, and it is staying on topic.

    I'm not trying to be a moderator.

    I'm just saying that moderators should act like ones. The thread is off topic and everyone sees that and a moderator is helping to take that direction.

    But, do what ever you want.<snip>.

    With that I am going to close this thread now for staff review. There were some interesting points and the discussion was enlightening.

    I am not sure if there is much point in continuing the discussion as it is starting to get repetitive.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
