Yes, I do. But I'd prefer to not share them. All one needs to
do is simply spend a minute on GOOG.

Yes, I will.... just searching where he specifically states that he's
saying such with his AOOo hat on and where, exactly, he is being troll-like.
Maybe he is simply trying to prevent his work from being
mis-represented. Or are you objecting to him exercising his
freedom in choosing how his info can be used?

Nah, it couldn't be the latter, since that would imply that
you would be more supportive of a codebase, such as LO, being
under a more permissive license, like maybe the ALv2, so anyone
and everyone could use it as they wish... like how AOOo is, and
LO isn't.
