Now that is more akin to the way that unsophisticates are lured into

the SFLC. "Ignorance is no excuse!", they say, "What's yours is now ours,
you have been touched!"

So, you think software developers just grab source-code and use it in
their projects, just assuming that it's free of copyright?  That would
be pretty stupid, don't you think, considering all GPL'ed software
will declare and reference the GPL?  Do you think willfully ignoring
the copyright and GPL notification should be an "excuse"?

Idiot.

nice how you added that "idiot" :-)

Presumably that was facetious. BTW, next to no one bothers with chrisv anymore. He has little to say and nothing to contribute to any interesting conversations. A minimal amount of lurking would tell you that.
