That link is crap.

The whole argument is "license your code GPL-compatible because the
GPL is popular and you don't want to be unpopular." If I went by a
popularity contest to decide how to behave I'd be running Windows on a

internet links containing GPL cheerleading to make decisions for me.

good reason to do ANYTHING, much less decide on the legal status of
