    Why does Seeking Alpha use the disrespectful term, Patent Troll, to refer to ACTG? I find it offensive given an understanding of their business model. They're not a Patent Troll, really, but SA perpetuates that idea. Why?

    Not so much disrespectful, but inappropriate. It's like calling Pfizer a "drug dealer" or McDonalds the "junk food chain." Though I liked "junk bonds" back in the mid-80's when I worked for Drexel Burnham, now that I think about it.
