Hi,

You never mentioned tournaments in your earlier post. You just said:

One can easily misunderstand 'brainsport' to mean hobby, which is what I did. In
 any case, I think your objection is pointless. GPL projects have every right to
competete in touraments. If a Hardware monster like Hydra can take part in
tournaments along with programs running on Pcs, so also GPL projects.
