It's refreshing to read a straightforward take on this. And indeed, BSL 1.1 is 
**not** OSI-approved (I've watched plenty of the internal discussions about it 
and similar licenses) because it falls foul of freedom 0: the freedom to use 
the software for any purpose. That's roughly the same reason the "do no evil" 
license isn't OSI-approved ("but daaad, I *want* to do evil!").
