I understand that, but one can help only up to a certain point. The
web is synchronous, it requires dedicated attention and often
non-negligible processing power.  Thus I can only help up to posting a
report by email, that I can write anywhere I am with whatever oldest
laptop I have, and send it asynchronously later. I think the same
applies to bernhard and to most of us.  So it's unfortunate if
feedback is only received through http, because this practically means
we can't give feedback.

Note that Bernhard refers to a _real_ threat, i.e. a company already
known to sue for that specific patent. Also note "we should avoid" and
"if there are alternatives".
