Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

I think we all understand that a few of you think SawStop should be punished and that the patent system is "bad" in this country. No! You're still mischaracterizing. No one is saying the entire patent system is bad. And no one is saying SawStop should be punished . Only that they should n...

Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

It seems to me, that some here object to the entire patent system entirely and/or to SawStop even existing. I have no intention of debating either of these because I don't understand this logic as they are in stark opposition to the ideals I believe this country were founded on. IF you truly believ...

Re: Cateract Surgery

Rather than drive at night and suffer with the glare I just go to bed. With that compensation I can say my cataract surgery was miraculous. I have problems with modern headlights and I haven't had cataract surgery. Current headlights are awful. I've been blinded by bright headlights at 2pm on a cle...

Re: Im happy I finally signed up

Ok the pattern is this: a "new user" (probably a bot) signs up and makes a single post resembling the above. It's perfectly innocuous and gets forgotten. Some time later the bot comes back and edits the post to insert a spam link in an effort to game search engine results (the more links t...

Re: Im happy I finally signed up

Is anyone advocating banning this poster? I see only that a few folks are commenting that ShellyHi's first (and as of this moment only) post fits the pattern of previous spammers or bots and therefore this post should be monitored. Nothing more. ShellyHi -- we love pictures! Please post a picture of...

Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

No, a patent does not "prevent" infringement, nor will the Government pay your lawyer-fees if/when you take infringers to court. If General Motors really wants your idea, they will copy it because you can't afford to stop them in court. Or the Chinese will copy it, and try stopping them. ...
