Why is that anytime someone mentions a new open source project on a mailing list, news site, or wherever, the *first* thing anyone asks is what the license is, and then, inevitably, what follows is endlessly boring set of idiotic posts about it should be a GPL license, how the GPL will save the world, how free programming is actually the only responsible way to go, ad nauseaum. I've seen this countless times and I just don't get it. Worst of all, no one ever ends up talking about the technology!
Hot chick lawyers with huge breasts just bursting out of their tunics...
Oh yeah - snogging, of course...

I don't know maybe it's not all bad. If we were all the same and had no diversity it'd be pretty boring. If the world didn't have people like that imagine how much peace and quiet there would be. No need for police, no need for military, no need for the IRS.
Plainly the world needs people like them and could not at all get along without them.
That can be hard to do because they generate so much noise. Case in point, in the AGG[^] mailing list some guy posted an announcement of his project that is partially based on AGG. Instead of any interesting technical discussion about his project, how it's designed, etc, etc, 30+ posts mostly about idiotic licensing quibbling, and then *another* post suggesting the poor guy should re-license his stuff to something more amendable to the poster.
Absolutely unbelievable, because *none* of it has anything to do with the AGG project. Just wasted noise.
