What *really* got Pamela pissed off at me was my suggestion/question about whether OSRM was taking the information produced by the posters to Groklaw and incorporating that information into their "product".
That question generated several angry emails from her, and really (OK: IMHO..) was the cause of the famous Pamela-shaming:
- "I'm also ashamed of some of you. Next time, I suggest you get all the facts before you speak..."
OK, OK, so I *won't* go into the question as to just how the hell it is that Pamela has the guts to be shaming anyone, but any way time (a week?) passes...
And then we have:
- "In the OSRM paper, it mentions the plan. We are preparing some educational materials to teach anyone who wishes to learn how to do a search for prior art, from a legal perspective, and we will then go hunting..."

will the people who are doing OSRM's research be paid?
or will they be expected to volunteer their labor toward the "Good of the Cause"?

Of course, it hasn't been deleted, either, so we're making progress!
