It is amazing how fast and how powerfully FUD works. The old IBM trick of announcing possible entry into a market or in our case the "potential" for future lawsuits caused by bureaucrats being suckered into approving a patent that the courts will surely throw out. It doesn't matter! Just the FUD creates a win for the FUDDER (fuddee?) and a loss for their competition (all of us).
Can't everyone stop discussing the patent and get this great board back to what it should be? Don't let the fudders win.
That's just my 2 cents
