That is exactly my problem; or to be more precise, Alexander's
problem.  Had the subject line been changed to "I Hate FSF To Pieces"
or "Copyleft Licenses Are Communism!" it would have been
accurate, but Alexander has had nothing specific to say
about "MS-PL/GPL compatibility."  His latest posts
have wandered off into generic anti-GPL rants.

Stay on topic, or get off-list.
