Legal Since I want to get this out of my system: here's a set of proposals to fix (okay, replace) the current failing patent system. No lengthy diatribe or introduction, just a raw list.

You can't nail me down or call me a fanboy, I'm not. I have a varied experience and I'm not specific at all. But at the moment, engaging in any meaningful conversations on OSRude is almost impossible because of the attitude of the minority.


You might be nicknaming this place OSRude, but other places are far worse. The crowd here tends to be generally much more reasonable and better informed than just about most places.

I would say to this, welcome to the Internet...

1994. That was the year I started on the Internet. Email, IRC, Newsgroups. Then Web. Before Java and before the Dot Com bubble.

I also started coming here in the early 2000's. Whenever Eugenia started. Though at the time you didn't need to register to comment, so I only did that right at the point the rules changed.

Erm... My point was that the internet IS Rude, Crass and a whole lot of other adjectives these days. The fact that some people are rude on a forum is not a big deal.
