Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

You're exactly right. It must suck for Google to need to completely rip off iOS because they don't have faith in their own abilities to produce something unique.

I wish I could flag trolls so I could ignore them. There is no interesting discussion to be had with you and your information is flawed.

Some mean guy on the internet disagrees with me, I can't believe it. I wish I didn't have to see his text.

In the above-mentioned troll (Nelson) "Ignore User by IP, MAC address and ISP RADIUS user name" would have been a *very* welcome addition.

Why that admins @OSNews haven't banned him for spamming (opening multiple threads on the same subjects) is beyond me.

And I suppose your useless, say-nothing post is much better? Right?

Not really. It's useless to block by MAC address since a MAC address is never seen outside the local network segment and I would certainly hope that no ISP is leaking radius user names to the Internet. That leaves us with the IP address which is trivial to work around by using something like Tor.

Why that admins @OSNews haven't banned him for spamming (opening multiple threads on the same subjects) is beyond me.


As much as I disagree with Nelson that's really not a good measurement for banning anyone.
