Here's the text of a note I sent to buy.com. I don't expect much from it, but maybe if there's a physical impact to their bottom line, they'll quit acting infantile. One can hope.
I'd like to cancel my account with buy.com, as I will no longer be ordering from a company that sabre-rattles over using patents. (article reference to slashdot) I am very much against software patents, and find dealing with companies that use patents as a competitive tool to be distateful to deal with.
I await your instructions on how to remove my account from your records.
