It didn't matter if Dewey KNEW it was bs or didn't know it. What mattered was that the offer was posted up on the JONP where it could be entered onto the docket, . But Industrial Heat chose not to enter that particular piece of info into the docket. Even if the offer was disingenuous, the judge could use that offer as leverage by telling the jury that , since Rossi had issued an offer that was a lie, he was the reason why y'all are stuck here doing jury duty, that kind of thing.
With that in mind, that Rossi had offered to pay up to $15M for the IP and ended up paying $zero while Industrial Heat had to RETURN all the IP for the settlement, that settlement was a Rossi net win. But I still doubt that he would have won the lawsuit requiring IH to pay out the $89M. He might have won some consolation prize of $100k plus lawyer expenses paid.
This post above is somewhere around where we started this offer business recently.
What mattered was that the offer was posted up on the JONP where it could be entered onto the docket like other items on the JONP blog had been.
Did we now come to the conclusion that the offer may be the one here on LF, not on JoNP?
Seems that way to me.
With that in mind, that Rossi had offered to pay up to $15M for the IP and ended up paying $zero
Did Rossi offer IH up $15M back? There still seems to be a severe lack of evidence for this.
However there is sufficient evidence that IH (through Dewey) may have suggested that something very similar would be acceptable, here on LF.
Rossi was so against it, replying to Ruby Shale, it seems very unlikely that Rossi suggested any such thing.

Kmo said:***Again, a VERY high duhh factor.
But you originally said it was on JoNP. So ...duhh right back at ya?
Para said: then what is all the noise about JoNP?
Kmo said: ***Maybe you should just step back a bit.

***Which was a sock puppet interaction, most likely, so that Rossi could cover his tracks in rescinding that offer.
Glad you agree Rossi uses sock puppets.
Quote from Kmo
***Nonsense. Even at the time we noticed that Rossi had pulled the offer from his blog. It seems obvious that he invented a Ruby Carat like sock puppet to rearrange the narrative
Then you asked,"Where did "we" report noticing this?"
So I answered that.
So you are saying that the "offer" was deleted from here then? But we just discussed it. We read what is probably the offer to get Rossi to make an offer a few posts back. Then one more that was even more clear. Here on LF.
Or are you saying there was also some sort of offer on JoNP that was deleted?
Where did we note that the offer had had gone missing? We posted that the offer had gone missing here?
I really don't understand what you mean or previously meant at this point. Perhaps, simply, you can please rephrase the offer story.
Start fresh. We'll forget the bit of confusion earlier, since memories are inexact and the trail is now hot again.
