Okay, so maybe I wasn't trying that hard in the question below. But usually.

Nick, this is great; I linked my answer to yours. One question - can you find anything to confirm when emacs first had that feature? The documentation you linked to has copy-writes over a long range, and the art would have to precede 1999 to be relevant.

revised Prior art for video games played according to a selected value system such as the claimed “codes of honor”
Reordered post to eliminate (possibly unfair) perception that this answer is a criticism of the others, rather than a a proper answer. I also deleted the quote from the FAQ - point it made is implied by the critique.

comment Prior art for video games played according to a selected value system such as the claimed “codes of honor”
Jeff, welcome to the site. 1) While I can't be sure, I agree that your downvote may be unwarranted, but I'm guessing if that's true, it's because your answer, as written, read like a critique of other answers, rather than a proper answer. I'm editing it slightly to remedy that. 2) When asking someone to explain their reasoning, implying that it's likely driven by "fanboy mob rule" probably reduces the likelihood of a good response. I know you actually just asked them NOT to do that, but the language is likely to make the reader unduly defensive, in my opinion.

revised What is the specific innovation in patent US 2010/0091396 (afocal optical concentrator)?
Tweaked wording in title to make clarify that question is genuinely asking for the specific novel innovation, rather than protesting the patent generally.
