The terms were pretty clear, but I suspect that either Mr. Forum Moderator or Mr. Sonnabend will take the post down almost immediately -- especially if they were to get advance notice of the impending inappropriate post.  In fact, being a moderator, I may be obligated (ethically, anyway) to remove the post myself.
 
I think that, as practitioners, the single most important thing we can do for the inventing community is to dispell as many PPA myths as we can.  For whatever reason, it seems just about everybody thinks you can get the power to stop other from making, using, selling, importing their invention with a few hours' work, $100, and a drawing on a napkin.  Don't even get me started on Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny!
 
Regards.

I will post a picture of myself naked (that's right, the full Monte!) in these forums if you can find one single registered practitioner, patent examiner, IP litigator, IP professor, or judicial clerk to state unequivocally and in writing that a provisional patent application without more gives you the power to stop anyone from using your idea under US patent law.

Undecided  Drat.  Can't do it yet.  Another motivation to pass the exam.

Are people really interested in seeing that?  My wife's not even interesting in seeing that!
 
It was meant to convey certainty on my part and suggest uninamity on the subject among those who actually know the subject.  It wasn't meant to be a tease for the other posters here!
 
I was going to make a "you first" offer, but I don't think I'm interested in seeing pics of the other posters naked -- no offense.
 
Regards.
