The consulted a free legal service that is mostly involved in GPL,
which, imho, was not legal advice at all.  As in you more or less
get what you pay for in the legal arena, and that free lawyer is
not going to be by your side if you should ever end up in a court.

You suppose, as in speculating or know for a fact?
Either way, that is an "exclusitory" move.

Most people see someone elses view as being argumentative when they do
not take the time to actually try to understand the other persons view,
or persuade them to take there view.  Any discussion with 2 sides could
be considered an argument.  I find it 

I would assert that I was actually sighting verifiable facts, with
URL's, that clarified what and why certain things had been done with
respect to SPDX rather than hand waving generalizatons that could not
be directly verified.  Sighting users of it without saying how they
used, etc.     How did you put it?  I poo poo'ed on your claims?
