I never said "ignorance". Someone made a claim that since Motorola's patents had something to do with WiFi and Apple used WiFi since early in the decade that Motorola couldn't sue.
I simply pointed out that saying the patent had something to do with WiFi was useless. It would be necessary to understand what the patent claimed before knowing if Apple's 2002 technology was covered.
Once again, you seem to be more interested in personal attacks than in understanding the simple, factual statements I'm making.

Obviously they can - and I've never denied it.
I simply said that it would be a lot better and more useful site if people only posted opinions on subjects that they know enough about for their opinion to MEAN something.
But I can see that a lot of people prefer millions of posts from people who don't have any concept of what they're talking about and without any effort to ensure that what they're posting has any validity.
What you're suggesting is that people who don't know the difference between a bit and a byte should be cluttering up microprocessor design forums with their drivel. Or people who don't know how to boil water should be posting thousands of messages with their advice on Food Network forums. Or people who don't know which end if a socket wrench to hold should be posting advice on car repair forums.
Obviously, it's legal and no one's going to stop them. But it would be SOOOOOOOOO much better if people didn't post things when they're clueless. I guess some people LIKE to look like idiots.
