It is unknown it an examiner filed a patent for a "method and device to move the mouse to defraud taxpayers."
It was a really nasty surprise when I opened slashdot and Beta hit me in the face. Apparently from the backlash, I was not alone. Every story was full of little but "fuck beta" comments. I added my own. There were one or two complaining about "anonymous posters" and the "fuck beta" protest, but most of the protesters were logged in.
The bogosity meter just pegged.
