How is this relevant?  I don't like the GPL.  So what?

What you said is simply wrong.  What you said is:

contains GPL software

Whether BSD or GPL is better in some way (or even in every way) is not 
relevant at all to whether you have materially misrepresented what GPL 
requires, and is simply diversion.

Which clause of the GPL justifies your statement?  They are numbered, it 
should be straightforward for you to identify the one you think has this 
effect.

I think its bad to let a clearly erroneous statement go unchallenged and 
fester malignantly in the archives for posterity.
