Is it really irony at all?  The GPL itself restricts freedom for the
purpose of preserving freedom.  Discussion restrictions seem like a
natural extension: GPLism introduced to the world of written discourse.  :)

(No license flamewars, please: I'm not making any normative statements
here.  I'm just pointing out that such restrictions are not unexpected
given the chosen licensing of GnuPG.)
