Quoting Alon von Bismark (al.von.bi at googlemail.com):
> The context: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WTFPL
As previously discussed, this would-be licence is defectively
constructed, its wording making no reference to a covered work and thus,
apparently, granting certain rights to the licence itself, only, and not
to anything else. Thus, it OSD merits as yet another cruddy permissive
licence with warranty problems don't even warrant discussion.
Your e-mail address, like wtfpl.user at googlemail.com immediately before
you, appears to have been invented for purposes of this discussion.
Would your name perchance be surname Puppet, given name Sock?
Cheers, Crypto lets someone say "Hi! I absolutely definitely have
Rick Moen a name somewhat like the name of a large familiar
rick at linuxmafia.com organization, and I'd like to steal your data!" and lots
McQ! (4x80) of users will say "OK, fine, whatever." -- John Levine
