That post states that GPL or AGPL would be adequate for your protection needs but you opted for BSL instead due to “GPL-phobia”. So why not dual license under BSL and (A)GPL? That way open source purists (including me) would have a license they considered acceptable, without it compromising your goals.

It's an interesting idea. The BSL seems like a safer choice given the wording straight-up blocks SaaS's. They're the real threat to ZeroTier.

On a side note, most people contributing to F/OSS don't like AGPL either. They'd instead by griping about that. Folks be irritated one way or another. His profit and their jobs are safer with people griping about BSL, though.
