Clearance Items

  • Wyttenbach - what is wrong with accepting money to fund deeper research? How else do you think this is going to happen? Is anybody else showing up with funds that enable a broad exploration? The open projects are admirable and noble but have less support and progress than folks anticipated. Why is that? It is not because of the people - most were smart, honest and hard-working. One of the reasons was the lack of resources. Are you blaming IH for picking up the some of the pieces and enabling folks to stay in the hunt? Bob didn't need any money - he is a successful and principled engineering Fellow who had retired to pursue his interests and enjoy life with his family. He has joined us because of our commitment to pushing the research and science thru to professional validation / verification. If we succeed there then applied engineering will follow. That should be a joyous day for all on planet earth, even those who will eventually be displaced by fielded LENR systems.

    Nothing wrong! I honor what you do - risking your money!


    The problems are the trolls, that want make us believe that this is classic research in favor of (open) science.


    Nevertheless you should find a balance between risk protection and "open" discussion of findings. The field can only progress if we do some coordinate approach, that of course should protect your investments! I personally did uncover the new theory albeit I could retain everything for private investigations. But I do not say that I wrote down everything I know and found...

  • Perhaps you could educate me on what is "known".


    Now I know that Bob is more eloquent than I thought

    Using the same old bad Rossi ploy to justify anything.

    How many grassroot projects did car mech E Bob work on

    And what was he paid and what was the budget for these grass roots projects

    and did they take one year , two years or ten years.

    And how many worked in the Bob Team?


    Btw. I love the new 2018 Subaru Impreza,

    Bob should buy one too. Maybe a Forester

    Any hidden design problems ?

  • Why the heck does such a comment end up in the „clearance items“?

  • Wyttenbach - we encouraged the researchers and scientist associated with our efforts to present anything they wanted to present at ICCF21.

    I thought it was an effective sharing. We plan to continue that approach.


    Alan - we plan to update at the next ICCF.

    No, it's a terrific idea. I just hope IH's future projects and participants will be vastly better and more carefully and precisely vetted than Rossi was. I am not convinced that they will. Of course, there is not a lot of information so far.

    Dewey Weaver : Why not do like the Gates Foundation does? Have a web page listing the projects, the level of funding for each, a synopsis of the reasoning explaining why the project was funded and a report of results thus far?

  • Since Eric left, we adopted a more tolerant policy, where banning would be used only as a last resort. It is a graduated, and polite process whereby we try to nudge and prod them back on a more acceptable path. All done with a soft touch, so as not to offend, and embarrass in front of their fellow members. Most respond and adjust accordingly, a few do not. If Zeus is correct, Bob has brought up the two topics (Stockholm reporting/AE data) over 30 times, with several more posts added yesterday. That is excessive, and indicates more a personal vendetta, than carrying on a conversation.


    Both Alan and I have tried in every way possible to get him to stop, and refocus his talents elsewhere. He refused every step of the way, so after exhausting all other means at our disposal, we had no choice left really. The suspension is lifted in 2 weeks. He is more than welcome to rejoin the forum then.

  • Shane:

    Your process makes more sense than it used to. It is a little weird to see a thread where you KNOW you responded to something and wonder why it was deleted. It's not like there used to be a notification that the post was moved elsewhere, it was just expected to be "understood".


    This thread is mislabelled. It should be called "Shunted Discussions" or "Rejected Posts" or something like that.


    Maybe it's time to consider shutting down this thread and opening up a new "Reject" thread with the new set of rules prominently posted so that expectations are properly set...
