What for ?? Seriously, I explained why I do think why this patent is
plain BS because of existing prior act, what more do we need ? Why
should I spend hours writing in correct english and legal terminology
(something I'm not capabale of producing) in a NOTICE that some stupid
company decided it was useful to pay some of their employees to fulfill
a piece of document which is a waste of their time and their money ?

Rgeardless of the US laws, which is still in the process of deciding
that patnenting software patents is just as useful as patenting
mathematic formulas, something that many countries in the world have
already stated, it's not ours to warn our users about hypothetical risks
that does not even exist. Simply because *if* someone can patent some
software, then we can shutdown The ASF.

Bottom line: not my problem, not even a problem. Let's move on.
