    Jed, someday you will have an exchange with someone who doesn’t see things the way you do and you will refrain from attacking and insulting them. This will be a personal breakthrough for you. Good luck with it.

    Adrian, far be it from me to give you any advice, but perhaps you should actually try to defend Rossi with arguments in his favor instead of simply attacking his critics. Those are not the same thing, you know.

    In most areas of human endeavor, it is useful and helpful to seek out people who have devoted considerable time and effort to understand the current state of knowledge, to separate the wheat from the chaff, and to figure out what is important to know. …

    @Kirk: I think we are still at a disconnect with respect to what a replication is. Jed points to graphs of some parameter (H/M ratio) vs. heat output as evidence for replication. Well, I am sure that all loaded palladium experiments have a ratio and…

    Jed, just because I don't immediately become a faithful follower as soon as you provide a link, that does not mean I don't read (or watch) them. Yes, I watched the YouTube video and I read the links. Perhaps the most interesting thing among the…

    Roseland,
    Every once in a while, I tangle with Jed for the hell of it. The results are always the same. I ask for a single example of a specific experiment that was replicated in the sense you described and am immediately sent to a compendum of…

    IO,

    Been saying that for years, but there are so many people that want this to be true that they believe what they are told to believe.

    Replication:
    Use same Bill of Materials
    Use same build instructions
    Use same…

    Adrian, you are the master of the straw man argument. I did not say that I have never said negative things about anyone - especially Rossi. I have no shortage of negative things to say about him and if that upsets you, I suggest not reading them. The…

    Totally predictable reaction, Jed. It is my ignirance and bad attitude that is the problem.

    I said nothing about the skills, credentials, or reputations of anybody. I am just asking for a meaningful definition of replication.

    Again, all I want to…

    All this talk about replications exposes the problem that in the context of this community, the term means nothing like it does in the mainstream scientific world. As far as I can tell, an LENR replication means that an experiment that bears some vague…

    Mark H : I am not sure that it is hilarious. Surprise is supposed to be an important element of humor.

    The key to keeping the faith with Rossi is to never look back. Amazingly, there are people who willingly do that.

    As I have said before, you cannot build and equip a factory, operate machinery, procure chemicals and other materials, hire employees, and otherwise operate such an enterprise without leaving a paper trail. Where is it?

    I agree with THH that whether Rossi is building a factory is largely irrelevant. However, if he is establishing such a facilty in the US, there must be permits, licenses, and various official filings with respect to employees. Unless he is operating as…

    Adrian, despite your perfect track record in ignoring any direct questions, k would as if you have anything to say in support of Rossi apart from the meaningless observation that there is no proof that the e-cat is a fraud? You should note that there is…

    Sam12 thinks the Stockholm demonstration was fairly convincing that the QX works. That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about him.

    Not meaning to be pedantic, Adrian, but there is not a shred of evidence that you have any evidence for any of Rossi’s bogus claims being true. But like you said, you don’t care whether anybody believes a word you say. Of course, that invites the…

    Sam, if Rossi’s demonstration of the EcatQX was in any way a positive development in your view, then it is truly a pointless exercise for anyone here to debate with you.

    You would think that if the people who worship at the feet of Il Douche and defend his every lie actually had some evidence that vindicates him in any way, they would be falling over themselves to share it with us evil skeptics instead of making vague…

    Sam,

    In your judgement, what are the chances that anything Rossi says bears any relation to reality?

    If your answer in percentage terms has any number to the left of the decimal point, you may consider some remedial education.
