   The GNU GPL also prevents some free software to be used.

Use is out of the scope of the GPL, see section 0 of the GPLv2.

   No the OSI has been realistic this time. The OSI was wrong in
   accepting the original Apple License for example, but the NASA
   license is just stupid, but yet a free software license.

Clearly, it isn't, since it is declared a non-free software license.

   You are just being unreasonably zealot, but that's as usual.

Please move such gibberish elsewhere.
