No actually if you read the thread through you directly said you believe software is patentable subject matter and then you directly said that in fact there is no material difference between software patents and hardware patents.
Actually, you DID say those things and actually, they ARE the arguments used for software patent apologists. So in exposing these ideas- which you admit you hold- as fundamentally disingenuous, manipulative and really extremist, which they are, I am not laying claim to special knowledge about what's in your head beyond what you've revealed and neither am I taking this conversation about software patents off-topic.
What is the Newt Gingrich approach to debate- attack the other side when your actions are exposed and claim that calling you out on things you actually said is some form of "dirty trick"? So somehow by calling your own ideas to the floor and criticizing them I'm trying to "make it personal" ?
I am comfortable with that anyone reading this thread will agree that I kept it very much on topic and quoted you honestly while replying with ideas, facts and arguments which themselves have a great deal of merit.
