More lawsuits filed than patents granted?

The first comment to the article Our Patent System Is Horrible and Getting Worse Every Year—in 3 Charts states:

Chart 1 shows that before 1998, there were more suits filed than patents granted. Are you suggesting that too many patents are being granted that shouldn't be? That companies are too litigious? That companies can't operate without infringing or are actively choosing to do so?

IPBiz notes that Chart 1 shows no such thing.
