Why people continue to give them the benefit of what is left of the what started out as a questionable doubt is beyond me.

Because aside from the FSF insisting that Novell is agreeing there are infringed patents in linux, Novell has a track record of opening closed-source code, providing support (and jobs) for open source developers, co-founding the OIN, and suggesting that Sun needs to be a little more forthcoming with the OpenOffice.Org community?

The following page is about as official a stance as you can get from Novell on patents, yet people ignore it, or pretend it doesn't exist, or even more sickeningly, claim it's just a front to further Microsoft's goals.

Novell has said one thing, Steve Ballmer and the FSF have said something different. If you'd rather believe Steve Ballmer, that's entirely up to you.
