( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

This bit:

Should any part be deemed invalid or otherwise contradicted, the entire license is invalidated and no right to use, copy, modify or redistribute exists.

Likely means that nobody has the right to do anything with OOPS software, since there are some pretty clear legal problems with this license.

I also like the preamble:

I wish to let people use this software for free as long as they don't abuse the free software community or Internet in particular ways.

Both the Free Software movement (as defined by the FSF) and the Open Source movement (as defined by the OSI) would not like this license. Both groups explictly forbid licenses from excluding specific groups, whereas this license spends sections 5-11 doing exactly that. The author seems to be giving lip service to Free Software while not understanding its fundamental points.
