This change was done without prior notice. To make things worse, large parts of our web site were copied and are now served (with slight modifications) by . Again, this was done without contacting us, and without our permission. This means we cannot use the name 'Nagios Plugins' any longer." Announcement here, discussion here"

I just wanted to reiterate this statement

The cost to the patent troll for filing a lawsuit is around $500, but Bannert was forced to spend over $10,000 on a legal defense

It cost my stalker nothing to convince the local government to issue me an unconstitutional citation for holding a St. Patrick's Day party without a permit, and it cost me over $6,000 to get the citation dismissed.
