What a lying sonofabitch. That is not called freedom. That is called
"forcible, viral open source". I think we can all see the difference. Open
your motherfucking eyes, communist goofball...

No, it's just plain "free."

No, it is not, except perhaps by lying atheist Marxist bastards and his
religious adherents.

Now you got it! GPL is about forcing people to do what /you/ want and BSD is
about letting them do what /they/ want. Let's see if you can guess which one
of those licenses is about freedom. Hint: freedom is not defined as forcing
people to do what you want.
