I want to find the person who wrote thus (long) document and teach them that not every noun is a proper noun, and doesn't need to be capitalized.
And by 'teach' I mean horsewhip them in a public square
7 am is too early in the day to have to deal with someone who refuses to consider your ideas or viewpoint ...
I'm glad that week has come to an end. Which means a digital retreat for yours truly for the next couple of days.

I'm surprised this still needs saying, but the difference between FOSS licenses isn't really about how much freedom they grant but who gets that freedom.
e.g. GPL/AGPL focuses on end-user freedom, MIT/BSD focuses on developer freedom, and Apache/MPL tries to find a compromise between the two.
