Possible reasons for people unsubscribing:
1.) The list name, "license-discuss" is ambiguous. Perhaps "license-review"
would have been more in line with your intent.
2.) I cannot find an online charter for the list, so checking to see if a
topic is on/off-topic for the formal charter is impossible near as I can tell.
3.) "Got it? Shut up." Nice attitude. Is that the official position of
OSI, to be completely utterly rude?
