Why don't you just distribute some modified GPLed stuff and say that you
will not supply the sources. Tell the FSF that you do so.

Well, now you get to the heart of the matter. There is no reason to ever do that. People do not seem to want much GPL'd stuff, so there is little chance of being able to distribute it. The few computer hobbyists who do fool with it know enough to get it from the horse's mouth directly. The FSF just fusses about tellling fools like you that they are performing a socially valuable service, but most people know better.

When you do *that* and don't have any adverse effects, you could be
considered right. Until then, you are simply a dishonest lying nimwit.
Which is, BTW, exactly what you are, Bill Weissgerber

You and a couple of others keep suggesting that you have some line on my RL, but where do you get your information? Is it all from that silly Shestowitz?

Since not accepting the GPL you are reverted automatically to copyright
And in that case you are simply breaking the law by distributing stuff you
don't own

Now tell us that "copyright law" is not tested in courts

Frequently it is, and the value of the copyright is assessed in terms of the money that it would have brought. The GPL stuff has no commercial value, so what is the penalty? The US copyright laws do not consider anything criminal until some money is involved.

Gods, you are really a dishonest lying idiot

Any you are just a silly parrot.
