Please stop updating copyright notices #9

There is no legal reason to update a copyright notice: your copyright will subsist until you are seventy years dead and then cease. People who understand what finished means shouldn't need to look at a copyright date either. So what you are doing is making changes for the sake of making changes, which is just as bad in the comments as in the code.

This is a surprising bug report. I don't really know how to react.

I didn't make the change just for the sake of changes; I made the changes at the same time I made other changes.

I understand your position though. Can you give me a concrete way that this has hurt you?

After further consideration, it seems like your bug report is not made in good faith. You can reopen with a proper concrete example of how it hurt you, but otherwise, I am just going to close this.
