What is this world coming to?! I think they should fire EVERYBODY who determines which patent requests are valid to become patents. Then we wouldn't have people patenting hyperlinks or people like NCR who basically patent the Internet!

Seen it. If they do patent it, every company can just ignore it, plunging the world into utter chaos as patents everywhere are ignored, and open source rises to bring us all to salvation...
