You didn't convince me that mixing two unmixable things is valid.

GPL is a free software licence and was designed to be such.
GFDL is not a free software licence and was not designed to be such.

The fact that FSF created a license that is not appropriate for us, free
software hackers, but possibly appropriate for different purposes can't
be used as a valid argument against GPL v2+.

There is no evidence that RMS compromized the meaning of "free software"
in the past or is going to do this in the future. Is so, any such
theories are bogus.
