application #6,525,747 for a united states patent

on the united states patent office website, jeff bezos seeks a patent on behalf of amazon.com for a Method and system for conducting a discussion relating to an item (otherwise known as an online forum) with the most mind-blowing document in known history.

"inventing" something that already exists and then patenting it seems odd to me.

you have to give it to the guy, on one hand he looks adorable (for instance, you might invite him into your house for dinner after meeting him on the street), and on the other hand he looks kind of creepy.
