Thank god you're not a drama queen or something :P

Nobody's demanding anything, as far as I can tell. I just see people arguing that open sourcing stuff would benefit the community more than not open sourcing it.

But don't worry, you can still make money off your work, as long as you give anybody the capacity to take it without paying you!
I was talking about projects that were free already, and could only be monetarised by third parties because of that. It was just an example that "free" software doesn't have to result in the developer not getting compensated at all.

Are you planning to sell your stuff? We were mostly referring to old code anyway. Not sure why you're getting so worked up.

And it sure as hell won't be GPL, those pompous self-righteous freetards can go jump in a lake.)
Fine, then use some other well-known license. GPL is usually just used as an example because it's the most famous free license. There are others (BSD, Apache) that are less strict.
