You must speak for yourself. Personally I've never claimed to be able to solve the world's ills or help children with cancer. Nor to mass-produce a free energy device.
Rossi never claimed the E-Cat to be a "free energy device", but a NiH LENR reactor, which makes a big difference (E=mc2 vs. E=bs). Someone that meticulous about technical details shouldn't be that sloppy with his terminology.
