IMHO it is also true for most linux projects. Who know, the PHP, Python, Apahce, Samba, gcc, glibc, gtk, kde, mozilla, openoffice, wine, lazarus, gambas, kdevelop, etc doesn't hurt any M$ patents ? Propbably the most of linux projects can be sued by software patents...
The difference is that Mono knowingly infringes MS patants, while it is not clear if the projects you mentioned do infringe MS patents.
As long as the Mono developers or Novell cannot or do not want to clarify this situation, Mono should be avoided.
I personally do welcome people to mention the fact that Mono knowingly infringes MS patents because it seems this is the only way to force the Mono developers or Novell to clarify this situation.
Pretending there are no problems does not solve this situation and if people start to accept Mono and MS sues the Mono developers/Novell because of patent infringment, the whole OSS community is affected.
I don't want to be part of a community where people knowingly infringe other people's patents and just don't care about it.
