Which I've always found rather fascinating.

If this had been Baen's second or third or fifth CD release, I might be able to accept that the author didn't understand what they were getting into, but this was the nineteenth or twentieth CD release - eight years after their first - with the exact same liberal distribution license.

There's a saying about doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.
