Notch may be in the right, but his smug approach makes me want him to fail. The "I'll throw piles of money at them!" is little more than a boast. It isn't "cool" and it doesn't put him in a "good guy" light.

Exactly. The guy just seems like an incredible dick to me. He needs to lose a pile of money and get the shit beat out of him to teach him some humility.

The irony here is intentional I assume?

Besides, Notch isn't boasting. He's saying he'd rather spend all his money fighting these guys than taking the cowards path and settling out of court. If that was the attitude everyone had, patent trolls would all be out of business.

But thats okay, continue wishing violence on people.

There's nothing ironic. I can be angry and hostile but I'm not a snide, condescending asshole who thinks he's smarter and cooler than everyone else. And yeah, sometimes some people really do just need a good asskicking to come down to what the rest of us call reality.

What exactly has Notch done to deserve an asskicking, or when has he given the impression that he's such a dick? If it's happened I've never seen it, and I follow Minecraft pretty closely...
