NANOG is not the right place to post this. This list is not an “interesting news group”, and as fascinating as the patent troll take down is, it has nothing to do with operational issues. Read the AUP, if your don’t believe me. Item 8:

Posts of a political, philosophical, or legal nature are prohibited.

I for one don’t want the list to be overrun again by people with a political axe to grind, no matter how noble.
