   Yet another unfounded claim. Can you back it up with some arguments
   or references? Otherwise you're just wasting our time.

Clearly, if you consider it false, it is your job to back it up.  Not

The only person wasting anyones time is you.  If you are to lazy to
look it up in a legal codex, please refrain from participating in this
discussion.  What I have written is clearly stated in several legal
codexes around the world, including the license of which a work is
licensed under.  That you are to lazy to be bothered to read any of
this, and resort to inflammatory remarks is simply sad.  This isn't
the first time you resort to this, please stop.
