how can a rageface be copyrighted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:54, 9 September 2011 (UTC) I guarantee i could find the person that created that vector image (whatever you nerds call it) and get his permission... but seeing as it isn't copyrighted in the first place this seems GIVE IT BACK15:43, 9 September 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk)
There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox on this and other similar pages.
74 patents at Bell Labs?
Really? That sounds rather remarkable, or maybe just another day at work, and it very well could be true, but if you look on the Internet, the only proof one finds of this claim is that it says so on his profile on atheists.org. Might anyone have any independently verifiable proof of this interesting claim? I will keep looking for it, myself.17:36, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
This search query might help, although I'm not sure how we would pinpoint our very own David Silverman at such a site, and even if there were 20 results per page on the 3 pages it returns, that would be 60 results total, and some of them are for people named "Jon David Silverman" and "Benjamin David Silverman". And even just the "David Silverman" listings could be some other identically named guy. And so, this is hardly an exhaustive list, if it is even mentioning any inventions by our particular Silverman. 17:54, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
