Given this statement, why would we take this license submission seriously?

This is like submitting a PR to someone else's repository with the
commit message "I didn't do any tests or use any linting tools".  That's
an automatic rejection in most OSS projects I know, and I don't see why
this submission should be any different.

Now, if you were looking for legal assistance crafting a license that
resolves what you perceive to be the deficiencies in BSD/MIT, that would
be one thing.  But you appear to believe that you don't need legal

-1 from me, propose immediate rejection without further discussion.
