@meyerweb Could you please give it a real license? Even the CC Public Domain Dedication would be better.

@slightlylate I'm not interested in arguing about licenses. Bottom line: it's public domain, always has been, and will continue to be.

@meyerweb I don't want an argument, I want a license. *Any* license. You're not the govt, so you can't just say "it's in the public domain"

@slightlylate You've got one. Take it or leave it. Oh wait—it's in the public domain, so you can take it and do whatever you like. Enjoy.

@meyerweb @slightlylate The issue is that public domain in the US doesn't really protect. Why r u opposed to slapping on something real?

@meyerweb *sigh*. I'm really happy you won't sue me, but I can't use this in projects now. Nor can any OSS project worth its salt.

@slightlylate If the lack of license is a problem, why don't you pretend you wrote it? // cc @meyerweb @dalmaer

@dalmaer Because a public domain declaration is exactly what I wish to express.

@meyerweb That is your prerogative. We have felt pain here though :) linuxjournal.com/article/6225 /cc @slightlylate @ppk

@dalmaer @meyerweb @slightlylate that's what CC0 is for. You can't assign to PD in all jurisdictions http://creativecommons.org/choose/zero/

@kevinmarks Sorry, it is what it is. You, Alex, and Dion can continue tut-tutting over my personal preferences if you like, of course.

@meyerweb I'm not tut-tutting, I'm trying to help. http://creativecommons.org/about/cc0 is how you waive rights. Syaing 'this is PD' isn't

@kevinmarks I've been through this many times before and I'm really tired of it. PD is what I want to say, and I've said it.
