That's exactly the mentality that I'm questioning. Why always go to
legal boundaries and ask for courts?

Neither do they say that one can simply ignore their advertising clause
and that everybody is save from being sued.
And further, the OpenSSL license is not violated if OpenSSL in included
in GPL software, the GPL license is. Thus it's probably quite irrelevant
what the OpenSSL FAQ says about GPL violations.
I agree that PostgreSQL (being BSD-like) should not care too much about
the GPL. But we should care about the OpenSSL license, as they seem to
take their advertising clause quite serious.

I disagree, sorry. IMO, this is an important subject hackers should know
about. (And it has nothing to do with "PostgreSQL vs. the rest.
Promotional ideas, etc.", what -advocacy is said to be about.)
