No, I mean I want to release code under the same conditions as the WTFPL 
license, but with less offensive wording. I can't do this without 
creating a new license. Every other license seems to have a silly "this 
notice may not be removed" clause. I'm only including a license for the 
benefit of the users, not for myself. With all the stuff people say 
about how there are legal ambiguities with public domain, I just find it 
unbelievable that there's no "formalized public domain" license.

No. Googling for it produced no hits. Creating yet another license is 
unacceptable.
