You misrepresent what is said in the article. RMS does not say anything 
about /specific /licenses. He says something about "Creative Commons" 
being seen as one license. As many people do not appreciate the 
difference between the different CC licenses he prefers to not use them 
all. Given his principled point of view and him championing his license, 
that is understandable and reasonable.

When you imply that not favouring Creative Commons licenses for a well 
reasoned argument means that you cannot think about how a /specific 
/Creative Commons license can be aligned with the GFDL is not giving RMS 
the credit that is his due. You are aware that RMS is not doing things 
on his own, some of the best minds in the business are part of a team 
that he represents.
