Couple of comments:

	1. You should be nice.
	2. You should not insult other people when you think 
	   you have an idea of what they are commenting. 
	3. You are being particularly annoying.
	4. You are not contributing anything interesting to the
	   debate, you are just flaming.
Now, to the content: he is correct and you are wrong.

The GPL license is not compatible with the BSD license.  This is a
long known issue: the reason is that GPL code can not be linked with
code that is under a more restrictive license (and the BSD license is
considered to be more restrictive as it includes the "credit should be
given" clause).
