Until recently, we had to read the ID literature in order to argue about it. One gift from the Dover court case is that we can argue more forcefully than before that evolution-deniers should simply be ignored, because they do not merit serious consideration (any more than, say, holocaust deniers). People do not need to bother to buy and read their new books, because the court case showed that the whole field is not valid science, and is just religious-based wishful thinking, warmed over and slightly reworked creationism, notwithstanding their claims to the contrary.
(Yes, this is not news, and we will read their books and laugh over them anyway, but the public stance can be "they already had their day in court, and they lost resoundingly.")
