You know, one must always talk nice about LENR researchers!
Never critisize their work, no matter how many years a researcher repeated again and again the same claims of "excess heat" - but nobody else can replicate.
Surely you do not place criticizing a LENR researcher's work in the same category as saying that his or her behavior is like that of a fraud? It is important to keep in mind the central issue being discussed here. It's not about critiquing the work of researchers being problematic, or about extreme skepticism of their claims being a bad thing, etc. It's about using terms like "fraud" too loosely. Surely this issue resonates even with some of a skeptical frame of mind?
