Submission + - USPTO asks for input on software patents. (

Nothing would please me more then to see the USPTO inundated with thousands of posts describing ways that software patents hurt the industry, but folks I ask for a bit of restraint in replying. When they get bombarded with posts saying things like "software patents sux" not only do they blow off that post, they also blow off other more legitimate posts. So please only submit if you do a clear, cogent, well thought out post. Thanks.
