GPL Idiots and Arrogant Selfish Bastards

GPL is basically an open source license that generous coders can use to release all the information and time they took to make a project for free to anyone who sees the value in their knowledge.

It basically states that anyone can take and modify someone’s GPL code to do w/e the hell they want, so long as it stays GPL licensed. (aka, the modifiers must also give out the source code as well)

Now this is a wonderful little license. It lets generous coders be able to teach the world, while also insuring that this productive cycle continues as long as the project lasts. Basically all of my recent programming has been learned from open source code, and I, as well as millions of people are forever indebted to the programmers who released it.

You must realize that releasing a project of yours open source practically removes your ability to profit from it. The code and everything it takes to create an exact duplicate of what you have created, are now free to the world.


So here is the issue. People are selfish. Especially ignorant people who are so prideful of the modifications they have made, that they completely forget where 90% of the code they are using is from.

They slap the original creators in the face, and break the law and their own integrity when they take this code, and distribute it closed source.

So Neil, fuck you for doing this to my code. And to all other modified closed source “private” viewers based on LL’s code, you’re a disgrace to yourself.
