    I am very surprised that you liked this comment. It is very common to know if someone is using an Alt to avoid a ban. I really would like a response Shane.

    You seem to me (well just like me) if someone is trying to evade the forum rules it make sense to find the and block based on IP else this place will be flooded with more BS than it currently has.

    I will say this Eric = good and poor Skif is nutz. I hate to say this directly but his shaite is over the top and he needs to consider his words.

    All of that is self-taught (and probably erroneous), learned from reading textbooks I purchased on Amazon in 2012 and after when I first started taking an interest in LENR experimental writeups and in skeptical criticisms of LENR.

    I am now amazed if you learned physics without formal education after reading you all these years. Well hats off to you sir. Really I mean it. I got to quit sniffing paint damn.

    It's kind of harmless. I would have preferred Zeus46 not post it there, but some people found it funny, including (I think) one or two mods. At any rate, we do not have a problem yet of people posting lurid images to threads, and once it becomes a problem, you can be assured that it will be handled by the mods.

    We do have a recurring problem of people such as yourself attacking forum members, suggesting that they're astroturfers and insulting them, calling them "useful idiots," for example. This puts you on the bad list, if you weren't already aware of that. We'll continue to deal with this situation as it evolves.

    Maybe you would be friends if you sent him a pizza?

    I thought I would post another link below on the EM drive which is something else non-related to LENR that I follow. This field is also getting Rossi-like (I get that point do you see?) but that there are real people that have very real skillsets working on it. Not that it works but in a way it is a vehicle for information.

    Dr. Nagel is an earnest man and he is following the method required.…r-claims.html#more-135473

    I also used to have some belief in this (EMdrive) but no longer but I will be damned if I close my mind off to scientific method. In fact I learned some of these things from you both as naive as I am. Claims are one thing.

    The quickest look shows a) no references to my work and b) references from 2016.

    What this means is that this document is another 'true believer' product. No consideration of extant non-nuclear alternatives.

    This implies to me it is just a rehash of what has already been discussed here and elsewhere. If someone reads it and thinks that my initial impression is wrong, please correct me.

    Kirk there is nothing wrong with a true believer it just matters if they are practicing science. He is doing both and you know it. I just want the science nothing more. If it is not there then it will not be. If there is something there then we are meant to study it.

    I have not heard this rumor. But let me point out that I know of several cathodes going back to the early 1990s that were both Pd and Ni. Usually Pd plated onto Ni, or a multi-layer sandwich. So it might be both. Pd has been plated onto various substrates or alloyed with Ag and other metals. So if you hear a confused rumor that seems to imply both Pd and Ni, it might be both.

    Pure Pd does not works well as far as I know.

    People (a.k.a. researchers) are working on this (Pd & W) Jed. I am sure of it. Just trust me on this. I would not say it otherwise. No point.

    Alan Fletcher ... truer words.. so to speak.

    Even though I do not see the point in Rossi anymore. That man has some ability that I could never have. Even most of us on the 'Rossi is a farce' bandwagon agree that he is damn good at pulling one (scam-a-roony) off by now. Even you Mary have to begrudge him that.

    I was reading one of the above posters on ECW noticing some of the flaws in NI based work. I was hopeful. We need to put this and the QuarkXQZ behind us now.

    After the pump test what is left? A blue light? We have to move on. There are more Pd tests coming from independent researchers -> i am sure of it.

    I will take my team and read. We shall discuss.

    If this comment was to me I would say that it is best you do. Research continues. Keep an open mind based on what evidence that is presented. I do. 'I unlike others' here see some avenues that do not work. I am still on the Pd bandwagon so to speak. I will ride this out for a while. We will see.

    There you go. A threat to ban me just because I questioned the validity of LENR! Is that how things are run here? My questions are valid!

    JedRothwell claims there have been thousands of replications of Palladium based LENR. I never said anything about powering the world with Pd/D LENR. I asked about why there were no working reactors. Even if it was to cost $100k to build a single working reactor, which barely lit a 5w bulb, and then run that for a period where it ruled out any known methods of energy production, you would have yourselves a winner. The cost to build it, the availability of Pd etc, would be irrelevant. The field of LENR would become mainstream science and we would no longer need a forum like this to denigrate each other.

    I have asked Jed for a link to the McKubre papers he quotes regularly but as of yet he has not provided. I want to review this document and then we'll discuss. Savvy?

    Listen to this Jed has time and time again linked to his index on the library. Look at it if you have a chance-- before posting. I am probably the only advocate here for keeping Marys voice here in LF (to say the least) and everyone many others are not in agreement with me.

    I will say this from my direct experience currently that there are researchers working on Pd based LENR.

    There is or is not something there. But what ever it is has been there for quite a long time. Rossi was a distraction and continues to be.\

    He continues to be just a distraction. Nothing more.

    It uses 'THE FORCE' geez Shane D. duh.

    Here is my question, does he design his stuff after coming up with a way make the foolery more plausible? Or does he make something and then spends his time on how to fool it for the verifiers ? There is method somewhere, I think.

    Betting anything in any other currency here than quatloos shows someones immaturity and that the mods moved this thread here indicates that they are the 'Providers'. Internet bets based on money show how serious someone is to show their honker. I have no desire to see your hork nor frame the battlefield with your specialty if say you are a lawyer or some wealthy internet asshole persona. It (LENR) is a point of view that may or not be supported. We need to look at this (betting) with a sense of the humor that it was intended not by the size of someones hork. FFS.


    I was not going to say a word but thanks but (well I am rigel after all ) I would like to find anything out that can not be disputed. Please keep the pump until the critics jump in on both sides in case something is in question Thanks! We do not want to hear a question like "but in this condition well this happens" or any such thing. People are watching this.


    I really appreciate the honest response. I am glad you took the time to respond. Rossi is not my cup of tea anymore but was at one time.

    I am no longer a fan of IH now either BTW. My nice guy 'goes out the window' when I think I am being deceived regardless of which side does it. Just business they will say but not once I think someone is not being honest. It's bad science regardless of whether or not if it is 'good business.' Hurts us all.

    Since this is an 'aftermath discussion'. Rossi in a way is teaching people lessons in how to use or misuse equipment such as pumps, VOMs and scopes and how that can fool educated people, and also at the same time actually inventing a new form of math. On the plus side If researchers duplicate any of his results, we will now know what to look for. He is kinda like the 'Penn and Teller' of LENR. I am also learning here what to check. It in a way is educational. I am not being disingenuous here.

    As I look at the current state here in 'a bit of disbelief'. I am not sure why any replicator is still working on the dogbone, when Rossi himself has clearly moved on.

    E-cat scrapped then dogbone scrapped but now new device that has the same unbelievable metrics. If you use his system of checking measurements you are good to go.

    If may ask those that still believe in him one question. It would be what would it take at this point to doubt him?

    Lets hope so Axil. I read your stuff on Vortex. I am not sure why you believe in Rossi anymore but do what you think is right. Don't change. I have never understood why people that disagree with you need to insult. They just can move on or maybe come up with a rational response. We disagree on LENR+ and I think Rossi needs to fade away but you and others are waiting for the super quark XQ (I think its now called) we are all trying to fix the same problem. Just do what you think -- screw the written critiques unless a valid point is raised then reflect and respond. Even me. But I will be damned if I ever critique you for thinking outside the box.

    Yes I kinda agree with this. But I would also see if anything other made claims people are interested in that can be tested. I would like to nail this down a bit before more replicators spend more time and address all the complaints at once. Just my 2cts.


    If you want to purchase the one on e-Bay and test it, I'll reimburse you the entire amount. Then after done testing, if you wouldn't mind attempting to re-sell on e-Bay. I'll take whatever you get for it, minus some amount for your hassle.

    It isn't a new one, granted, and it may be a lemon. But it would at least give us a data point. I would really like to know who is blowing smoke: Rossi or Dewey.


    One of those two have access to then and I am pretty sure they are not being used anymore. Maybe Dewey or whomever is posting for the other side can ask what happened to them. It is a good question.

    If you go to the trouble to look up the names and C.V.s of the researchers in the major papers from 1989 through 2000 or so, you can easily determine that those people are now somewhere between 80 and 100 years old if they are still alive. Very few people still conduct laboratory research at those ages. Most of them are dead. You can confirm that with an actuarial table.

    I have their obituaries so I know which ones are dead, but you don't need that information. Surely you know that most people are dead by age 90, and very few are capable of doing laboratory research.

    They made good progress while they lived and had funding. They did get better results. A few of them still are getting better results.

    Jed - I live in DC and I get this message. There are real scientists working on this. Either way they just want to know.

    In which way is hurting ?

    Good or bad Rossi has taken the public attention again on LENR after years that LENR was almost forgot.

    Look at this Forum. The most active threads are about Rossi.

    But I presume also that some people feel hurt because Rossi has the only really working LENR technology and so there is the risk that all the other disappear.

    Which way hurting?- good question -> You know maybe it is helping.... but not that I can see it. He may have driven some folks to look at LENR. But to answer your question directly ; he is causing people that have funds away from the field. As they see it as toxic.

    I am a strong believer in LENR. Maybe if I could ask him someday.... I would say 'why don't you retire take the money and enjoy life and not get poked by all these people? '

    He won this lawsuit. Life is too short you know.

    Most damaging for the LENR development is the unprofessional approach of Darden who thought they could play as technology developers and financial investors at the same time, without even having the minimum requirements of necessary technical know-how. what they actually have done was try and error. J.T. Vaughn's testimonies reveal such a high degree of organizational and, above all, technical inability, that I claim them 100% responsible for the fact, that we today still not have clarity about the functionality of Rossi's technology. But above all, Thomas Darden is the one who has set-in a bloody and incapable beginner on the perhaps biggest deal in human history and has not been able to pull the emergency brake in time and find capable staff, but instead with mafia-methods tried to rescue his skin and the reputation of his investment fund, which also went completely wrong with this settlement in court. And if someone claim that all this are just peanuts and the lawsuit is a minor issue for such a big investor, then I consider that one takes his son only to such a business appointment, if it is really significant.

    I am not happy with IH now but this does not change the fact that Rossi's Ecat did not work. I have not spent anytime on if IH did the required due diligence, as I am sure that is now apparent they 'IH' missed the boat. But Rossi is pretty clear now. But as angry as I am with IH now I can see how they wanted to cut the loss. Not happy but understand it. I have to. Nothing will change the fact that it didn't work.

    Quite literally nothing. While LENR exists! this ecat/quarkX will never be in a store in our lifetimes.

    This is no longer a question if (in the USA) that it is nuclear, nor a question if it is safe (OSHA) or regulated (state governments) or even a patent (UPSTO) this is not the one to follow anymore. We need to get on to better ideas that have more promise.

    Oh well another post for tonight. Someone else here posted a link so I followed the post that lead to this mess on ECW so forgive me original poster as I donot remember your name I meant no harm.

    This is going to kill LENR someday. After the Me356 device debacle this is just getting harmful.

    If anyone reads this comment just look at what is happening in the comments. I mean read the comments.

    I hate talking past people. Just read it.…al-regarding-ecco-device/

    Why are you so squeamish, you have a lot of freedom here, just stand over it!

    Mary I agree with Rends here. Your posts have been getting better; and are more informative and less personal. You are putting more meat in your posts and less insults. People tune the insults out. So please keep with the new Mary. The mods are just here from keeping us all calling each other assholes. They are quite frank about it.


    Be a sailor ;)

    Shane D.

    One of your best comments. I was not anti Rossi. Just pro LENR. I just can not stand being deceived. I mean I can not. I am still pizzed at IH for not following up on one of their representatives saying that they would fix the problem. That Doctore fellow is a scoundrel and he should retire from this LENR world as he has done enough damage.

    This is almost as bad. But the one thing I really do not get all the people I have been talking to here for years continuing believing a deceiver. He needs to go and shut up.

    How obvious does it need to be gosh... Some of the believers need to understand he is just hurting us now.

    slashdevslashnull , we have concrete reason to think you're a sock puppet account. We're having a discussion about how to handle sock puppet accounts and the people who create them.

    Thank you Eric.

    While you are having your discussions I would consider that it can not be done other than a simple few things.

    If someone is using VPNs you are not going to fix it.

    Some people here .......not saying which one of our locked out users has the ability to script things

    I will never respect someone here who breaks a ban with another userid.

    This is a place for discussing LENR not a battle ground. And FFS respect it.

    /anyone want pizza?

    I was referring to the demo that will take place by the end of the year: I think it will be a presentation, not a test conducted by third parties. As for the sale of the reactors, I presume that the first customers will want to have a private demonstration of operation before completing the purchase.

    Yes that scoundrel has nothing more to prove. He made his mark.

    I see. You are protecting Axil. I have seen Axil's "work" for years. Like THH, I do not choose to engage. But I am glad that you find his musings illuminating. I am sure they give you a deeper understanding of the world than the rest of us poor slobs.

    I am also protecting Axil he as a voice and supplies educational links. He is trying to make this world a better place. I am not sure if after all these years I have ever ever seen him make a personal attack on another forum member. We would all lose if we lost his voice. And you can choose not to read his stuff. And take anything with a grain of salt. That link provided was valid.

    What that implies . . . A few brains on the planet . . . So, you are saying there is hope that aliens will come down to earth and make me president of earth because they like my brain patterns. I mean, THH's brain patterns!

    If aliens liked TTH's brain patterns at all then surely he would be allowed to post on Planet Rossi so if he ever is made president it's because of his ingredients in his secret curry recipe
