Since the Rossi fans seem quite concerned about my contributions to this site, I thought I would clarify my positions for the others who have seen the light about Il Douche.
Since I have not studied the requisite hundreds of papers required to have an informed opinion about LENR, I am quite willing to admit that I don't have one, at least with regard to the existence of the phenomenon per se. I don't know if it exists or not. I have been exposed to enough material to feel safe in saying that there have been no reliable, reproducible and well-defined manifestations of LENR. As far as I can tell, nobody can make it happen on demand, or if they can, they are keeping it secret. Therefore, the people claiming to be commercializing LENR are either scam artists, seriously deluded, or simply are putting the cart before the horse. It is not ready for commercialization. But does LENR exist? I don't know. I am skeptical, but that is not a dirty word.
When it comes to Rossi, on the other hand, I am not in any way agnostic. I am fully convinced that he is a con artist and I frankly can't fathom how anyone wIth half a brain can conclude otherwise. My critic AA has a bunch of degrees to his name. He must want Rossi to be real so fervently that he has mothballed all his education in favor of blind faith. If doing experiments trying to find plausibility in Rossi's blatent lies is his idea of a valuable use of time and resources, he will be busy for years to come. There are so many lies to investigate...
So as far as I'm concerned, Rossi fans can rant and rave all they want about what I have to say. I have zero respect for any of them, frankly. On the other hand, I have no quarrel with the other regulars here who see Rossi for what he is even if I don't accept their conclusions about other matters. Perhaps they know far more than I do.
