so if i create a software and with few printf i broadcast a lot of
harassment, injuries, falsity about you and i sign my software as GPL
you cannot take me in front of a judges?

or i write and distribute a software like worm, something written to
nuke remote systems or ddos networks, i append GPL license to it and
nobody can tell something to me?

your fantastic world is very nice....

GPL protect the software, not developers, "as is" and "no warranty" is
about the requirement a user can ask to the developer, not about
developer liability in front of him software...
