Rossi at least is open to various theories and ideas about these anomalous reactions, for the most part. He has allowed all sorts of conceptscto be published on his blog. On the other hand, Mills has dismissed virtually all of LENR and more or less declared only his hydrino to be real. Hevhas built up a grand unified theory that he projects as absolutecreality. Yet, his best evidence, colorful and mysterious hydrino hydrides that he very early on showed off and made countless claims about, are rarely mentioned. This is totally strange to me, because they could be worth a fortune. There are rare isotopes that cost thousands of dollars per gram. If his hydrino hydrides were real - don't know either way - it sure seems like they could be a pathway towards profit and getting his theories accepted.
Moreover, BLP is the only party EVER to try and have one of the MFMP's videos removed. There is also the account of a student who was doing basic research who after posting a paper was sent legal threats. I think this sort of behavior is thuggish.
