| I recall somebody had posted a link to a program they had written on 
| some Linux forum I was on a few years back. They released it under the 
| GPL (cuz they didn't know any better).
| I couldn't help but notice there was no mention of the source code.

And this is just fine if the person has written the code themselves
and are not using other GPL-ed libraries.  The copyright owner does
not have to ask himself for a licence to distribute, nor is he bound
by the terms of the licence he offers others.

UNIX is user friendly, it's just picky about who its friends are
