I see. I see. Well I think I addressed that about as well as I can. You're talking about them right now so it's not like you heard a word and don't know what it is.
What you mean to say is not that you don't know what those crazy things are about or what people mean when they start talking about them, because obviously you KNOW what we mean.
What you mean to say (and here I am telling you what you mean, which is sure to piss you off I am aware) is something more like "I don't think there *ought* to be a distinction between software and hardware when it comes to 101ness i.e. fundamental patent eligibility."
For the record, a software patent is a patent on some software which is run on a computer. This is irrespective of whether that computer has a screen, an actuator arm or other device attached to it which changes some state of matter either internal to the computer or in the external world. No software, no matter how it intersects with the world outside or inside any machine ought to be patentable, not to say copyrightable, which almost all programmer believe is a fair application of IP, with a few notable personalities excepted.
