Peter Gluck has had some second thoughts. I did not read the next day's blog before posting this. I may make further comments below, but my apologies for any offense, and if I erred, the error is mine. Meanwhile the basic inspiration for this post was actually exploring Rossi's reactions. http://egooutpeters.blogspot.r…-blog-and-primum-non.html.
Reading over Rossi's comments on Gluck's blog, I realize how familiar it all is. Rossi has been talking more or less like this since 2011, though it is getting more extreme. He's not sober. His grasp of fact is weak. But he is damn sure that the snakes and clowns are snakes and clowns!
Who has started the LENR (Rossi-IH) war?
A few days ago, a LENR researcher whom I have always considered a good sciwntist
and friend- now supporting IH's position, however with civility- wrote:
" I only hope for the field that Rossi seeks the path of peace and withdraws his accusations and law suit.
He has created quite a mess."
As it is natural, this researcher- as so many other LENR-ists is wanting peace and
work in normal conditions, however I am asking if the war is indeed Rossi's fault,
only Rossi has to move for making peace? WHO HAS STARTED ACTUALLY THE WAR?
The question of who started a war is asked by people who have no clue how to stop wars. That question never, ever, stops a war. Wars are stopped when mutual benefit in stopping them is found. And there are people who help facilitate that, and people who don't. The people who point to one side and blame them never help, unless they have enough power to overcome that side. The bloodiest wars are between matched opponents, where each side believes it is right.
I have received an answer that is really amazing and paradoxical- in context. It comes from Dewey Weaver IH's front line man who explains the case:
"How do you sit down for a reasonable conversation with someone who sues without warning? Rossi was planning this litigation for a long time and was apparently counting the days for when he could file the litigation."
Dewey is not "IH's front man." Peter has bought that characterization of him. He is an IH investor, definitely an involved party, who certainly has his position, but he is not a spokesperson for IH. IH has been very explicit about nobody speaking for them without authorization. As an investor, Dewey may have some level of inside information, but that's about it. Jed Rothwell also claims some level of inside information. In neither case can they reveal the source, which is perfectly normal and this has been going in for many years, that people leak confidential information, from time to time. They may or may not be violating a trust; they may believe that nothing critical is being revealed.
So...Rossi, who according to the same Dewey Weaver has never obtained excess heat, has chosen unsuitable instruments, made flawed measurements- ergo is in
lost situation- OK, this Rossi is watching with sadism when he starts a perfidious litigation against a perfect company- an example of correctness and openness, possessing all truths, motivated by high ideals?.
Isn't this seppuku?
Peter is not accurately reporting what has been said and who said it. Here, Dewey was quoted. Nothing was said about sadism. Nothing was said about IH being a perfect company. Peter is fanning the flames. Words of a certain meaning have been interpreted beyond what they mean, to create an exaggerated story.
Rethinking the story, remembering the vocal and thorny messages of IH's supporters
I had a REVELATION. Just take in consideration the reports of the ERV after 3, 6 and 9 months, how the impossible, nonexistent and absolutely unproductive miserable fake plant was used as trap or bait for investors and ot FRossi said it is "stellar"-Ok, then we who take these arguments as serious- we are in the extreme danger to lose
our sense of humor- terribly bad! Please read just the quotations of MOTTO and-let's
In a word, Rossii's conspiracy theory, a variation on the evil corporation out to rip its investors off. But wait ... Dewey is one of those investors. It was all a ploy to convert Rossi's reputation to cash for IH, while dumping him? So what does Rossi say?
I have asked Rossi who has started the war and his answer is natural and. I think logically consistent.
Rossi answers re: Who has started the war?
Q- The part which breaks an agreement, starts the war and creates a mess. Was it you?
A- The mess was created by IH not paying what is due. Leonardo Corporation is just making what any honest concern would make when a customer does not pay: ask for justice in Court. The reasons of our complaints have been put in evidence and published.
There are eight counts in the Complaint. The first Count is for non-payment. When a customer does not pay, going to Court is far from the first thing to do. The first thing is to request payment when it has not appeared on time. The next thing is to negotiate. And, then, going to court with a request to resolve a dispute is one thing. That's done all the time without the rancour. Normally, as well, an attorney will send a demand letter attempting to avoid filing an action. There is no sign that ordinary and customary business practice was followed. Instead, the suit was much more like a war, claiming bad faith, fraud, going after the officers and not just the corporation, going after Cherokee, which did not sign any agreement with Rossi and is apparently not an owner or investor in IH, all this was taking a dispute and turning it into a war. However, yes, it was based on IH not paying. So who started it? It looks like communication between Rossi and IH broke down before the GPT report was issued. However, we only have details reliably from one side, Rossi. IH has not Answered the complaint and has not provided new fact in their Motion to Dismiss, only legal arguments based on the Complaint. They hinted in a footnote at what they might allege later, that's all.
Q- There are signs that IH knows that its position in the conflict is weak and
the facts are not working speaking in their favor
Is Peter reporting or is he an attorney for Rossi asking him leading questions? I see no such signs, and I've been paying attention. What I see is a lot of fluff on blogs. The Motion to Dismiss has been entered. The legal arguments in it appear sound. Rossi's attorney will presumably respond with counterarguments, but, at this point, based on my own understanding of law and discussions with a lawyer, most of the Complaint is toast. The most likely part to stand, requiring more evidence and a trial, would be the first count, nonpayment. There is an obvious defect in the Complaint, but Rossi's attorney might remedy it. I.e., as matters stand, the Complaint is toast. But it might be rescued. Why it was filed so poorly would be another story, but what I notice is that the Complaint talks like Rossi. Not like a competent attorney for Rossi.
A- Absolutely this is the reason they tried to assassinate my character by any means.
Except that Rossi knows that all this "assassination" -- which is not by IH, but by many others, with only one or maybe one more actually having some connection with IH -- is irrelevant. They could make Rossi look, on the blogs, like a complete fraud, and it would have zero effect on the lawsuit. In other words, Rossi is putting together things that are not actually connected, which is a sign of how he thinks.
(I have to add that they also try to assassinate the characters of the 1MW plant, the ERV, the instruments and the measurements -plus of anybody who wants to keep a sense of humor, reason, reality and are doubting IH's story)
One footnote in the Motion to Dismiss is all that IH has said, plus they made some comments in a press release about being unable to confirm Rossi's claims. No claim has been made about the ERV, to my knowledge. Rossi lives in a fog full of vermin that are not actually there. Some people, based on private information, have said various things. This is, simply, rumor. Rossi did not answer the question.
