Everything interest me at least a little. What blows my mind is the complexities of copyright and the extreme silliness of a lot of patents. Throw in trademark and it nearly melts me down to see how little the supposed experts know in any of the three subjects. Is your day job a politician? You don't have to resort to name calling. :D
I don't disagree with anything in your write up. Just sometimes your opinion is different than mine, I think that's good, we need different views to judge if our opinions are within reason. That's why I'm here, to tweak my opinion with different ideas. I see a huge spectrum of intelligence, from very smart to ignorance to idiotic. For most of my life I didn't care about intelligence, now that I'm old(er), I have a hunger for it and I can find it here with subjects that I never thought or heard of So even if I disagree with your opinion, it's still valid and helpful to me.
I've been an avid reader of TD for a few years now. I don't comment much because I have a hard time expressing myself in writing but I sure learn a lot here. I sometimes disagree with Hephaestus, however, I very much enjoyed this write up. You go Hep!
