Couldn't agree more about the nonsensical use of software patents, be it in the USA or elswhere. But was it really necessary to despise the people working at Walmart with a despicable comment on the so-called 9-to-5 working drone?
Dubbing him an average Joe would have been enough and right to the point : the system is sick, not the people working (yes, working) at Patent Office.
