Took me a week to realize that "!rant" just means "not rant".
I thought it was some sort of post front-matter that was no longer supported by the app (like a Duck Duck Go "bang").
Let these rotting institutions die.
Old people still get duped by telephone scammers, but you don't hear anyone saying we should reform the scam artists.
Then again, corporate bureaucracies don't put "Victim of $40,000 Telephone Scam" under their minimum requirements.
I guess if they did, we probably WOULD hear from the hilltops, "We Need Telephone Scam Reform Now!"

Lol @ GPL... No license which proposes a restriction on the user's actions can be considered "free as in freedom".
The MIT license comes close, but mandates the inclusion of a copy of the license.
The WTFPL, while designed to use humor to bring attention to this very problem, still fails in its goal by incorrectly stating that "changing [the license] is allowed as long as the name is changed". Wrong: it's allowed because anybody is allowed to type what they want into a text document.
The only good one I've found is the Unlicense (http://unlicense.org). Unlike the others, it's not a prescription for what you may do with your own property, under threat of force; it's simply a friendly notice that you actually respect the rights of the user and would never imagine legally violating them.2
