If I did, I assure you it was unintentional. :-)  If anything,
I think you may have been guilty of this before I, since it was
you who changed the text tomake it appear that I was against
proliferating licences. :-)  I am not against that at all -- what
I am against, and apparently failed to make clear, was the
attitude in the original post that supports 'making it harder to
create a new licence is beneficial.'  Or, to quote Russ exactly,
"This has the beneficial effect of making it harder to create Yet
Another open source license."

I agree with keeping the number of essentially identical licences
to a minimum.  I do *not* agree with accomplishing that by
discouraging people from trying.

Is that any more clear? :-)
