Sue me first, Microsoft campaign

Many may consider this as an unconventional request many users of Linux and other open-source software are inviting Microsoft to sue them. You may have heard about Microsoft’s patent-infringement claim against Linux FOSS:

Microsoft claims that free software like Linux, which runs a big chunk of corporate America, violates 235 of its patents. It wants royalties from distributors and users. Users like you, maybe...

Now there is a nice campaign running called "Sue me first, Microsoft" :D

Hello, and welcome to our Microsoft lawsuit invitational. This page is intended to be a place where people would like to join together to invite a Microsoft patent infringement lawsuit. If you would like to invite a visit by Brad Smith, Microsoft's head litigator, please feel free to add your name here. We are asking that people include their name, email address, version of GNU Linux disto(s) being used, and a short statement explaining why you are using that distro.

In the very tiny itty bitty off-world chance that they do sue, I don’t have the money to afford a lawyer. Besides, isn’t this kind of like poking a stick at a wild leopard in a cage?? Remember what happened then? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxosMgthFN4
