How 'bout them apples?
 
The website you mention has the following quote:
"Being a Patent Examiner for so many years and effectively “critiquing” literally thousands of sets of claims, I have become an “expert” at claim writing."
 
Well waddaya know? ... I suppose every game official is ready to take up a uniform and play professional sports by that reasoning!
 
There are also grammar errors in the content of that website for you flames.
 
That guy can say anything he wants on his website I suppose. But an ex-examiner who just joined my firm has been confirming my suspicions by expressing himself that writing patent applications and serving clients is very different than examining patent applications. Ex-examiners enter our side of the game with valuable background knowledge and probably are capable of becoming proficient in prosecution at an accelerated rate. However, the two aspects (examining and writing) are very different jobs. Sure, much of the same lingo applies to both jobs ... but many years of examining doesn't equal one day of writing patent applications ... and vice-versa. I'd be particularly concerned about an examiner that recently got his registration number and went solo in his first practice efforts. After all, a seasoned patent attorney/agent, if hired by the Patent Office, would not be immediately granted signatory/primary authority ... would she?

"the *claims* within a patent *is* the protection..."
 
 
Also note his convenient use of quotation marks throughout (e.g., "expert").  This guy sounds like a chump.

I love how he calls himself 'Doctor' without any justification.
