On his blog, the hapless and inept Gene Quinn calls me a liar. He says that’s why he banned me from his blog. He’s lucky I believe defamation law is unlibertarian or he might be facing another lawsuit–but he’s already got his hands full defending himself from in another lawsuit from charges of making false and misleading comments on his site. Poor guy. Anyway, I explain in excruciating detail here why he is himself plainly lying in his outrageous comments about. Quinn is a very sad person: he is obviously not very bright or well educated; he writes like a fifth grader; he argues like a seventh grader. He may be competent at prosecuting patent applications, since that is not that hard to do–it’s basically like preparing technical reports explaining an invention and then corresponding with the PTO according to its esoteric set of rules. He may also be good at marketing himself, which seems to be the primary purpose of his site and his blustery logorrhea. He’s sort of the patent equivalent of those car dealership owners who put on fruit hats and speak in weird voices in local, cheap TV commercials just to sell cars. His calling me a liar, when I am not and when he knows it, is dishonest, but to be expected from a pathetic joke like he has shown himself to be.
By the way, since he’s banned me from his site, I can’t reply to him there. It would not hurt if others in the libertarian community commented there and set Quinn straight.
