A more pointed version of my previous question. Besides a general slow-down, we are starting to get more questions regarding the poster personally getting a patent than questions about stoping bad software patents. As a generally pro-patent person, this is fine by me and I'm happy to be helpful. However, I do think there may be a larger lesson embodied in the site's body of posts.
As I said in the first version of this question: "Maybe the widespread feeling that there are tons of low hanging fruit of ridiculous patents out there is incorrect."
I think this site's total contents now represent evidence that might be newsworthy as a balance to the worst of the uninformed anti-patent hysteria in some parts of the press.
