While I did not add that to the scipy page, I did write that some time
ago. In the interim, I have significantly toned down the language in
the version on the mpl website
The polemic started it's life as a response to a question about
licenses on the mailing list, some people found it useful, and someone
posted it on the wiki. But I agree, it is best to tone down any
rhetoric about licenses so the removal is a good thing.
