Now come on, old RJ.  You're not village idiot enough to equate
"dismissed with prejudice" with "tossed out as meritless".  You've read
enough web pages where it's been explained what really happened.

Again, it boils down to the question, what's the GPL to you?  Are you
working for, or with, or in sympathy with some organisation (no matter
how badly organised) with an interest in vilifying the GPL or free
software?  If so, what sort of organisation?
