Unfortunately there is a great deal of people that are ready to drop
sh*t on projects just because they are copyleft, and that doesn't help GCC.
Of course, those are the same people that wonder "why" when a random

project, and then changes their mind.
We can indeed choose to ignore trolls; still, they exist.
