Seconded and raised:  I'll actively campaign exposure of any such
"resource" as grossly misleading, if it reflects in any way your recent
expositions on free software licensing.

As I've made abundently clear in off-list discussions, which I have zero
interest in continuing with Mr. Sherman, Rick's estimation of my
capacities are flatteringly exaggerated.

To the extent necessary to disabuse anyone of the falseness of claims
raised, I may debunk issues.  The aforementioned shortage of time and
patience will likely reduce this to the simple statement:  Aaron Sherman
is unqualified to speak on free software licensing issues.
