Not sure what you mean... I certainly didn't attack you personally.
Merely pointing out that mentioning EnterpriseDB as a valid model is
inappropriate here :-)

Proprietary software companies are impinging restrictive licenses on
their users; we believe this to be immoral.

Remember that this is a GNU project, and most people here are rather
firm regarding free software ideals...

(Which makes it all the more annoying that an arrogant clueless person
like this Steve Paesani, who didn't take the trouble to learn about our
philosophy, nor about the commercial success of various companies
sticking to this philosophy, comes here telling us how we should license
our software; as if he'd know more about it than we do...)
