In open source, you can only have “my” in the associative sense. There is no possessive “my” in open source.”

That’s wishful thinking but factually incorrect. If I want to remove an open source project I own the copyright of, it’s my right to do so. If someone has kept a copy of it and has the right to distribute it, they can do so, but no one can force me to distribute my own content, even if I’ve open sourced it in the past.
