Really?  An abysmally drafted licence that had no compelling reason for
even being attempted, that was submitted in a non-compliant manner, and
yet you got a very civil set of responses telling you exactly what the
problems were, and _you_ are disappointed?  What about the rest of us?
Do we get to be disappointed, too?

On the evidence, you didn't attempt to understand either software law or
the OSI before submitting.  There's a lesson in there somewhere, if you
ever wish to learn from it.

Good luck with that.
