Hi Sithlord,

I don't know where to begin, but having searched Wikipedia regarding Dr. Mill's and his (Black Light) theory, it leads me to believe this guy is a con artist. When he states that everyone is wrong about quantum theory, and he's got it right... I begin to wonder about his motives. The synopsis regarding his theory and word gibberish he uses to describe it lead me to the believe this guy is putting the con on.

If his products reach the world market soon, then he's right. Quantum theory will really need modification!

This kid has ignored Paul's advice against starting off-topic threads (which he acknowledged) that was given after his last off-topic thread. Thus this new post about some crank scam unrelated to fusion is an ordinary, open-and-shut case of trolling.

Delete the thread, and delete "SithLord's" account.

And if he comes back under a new name with similar material, don't give him the benefit of the doubt--croak him again. EVERY legitimate new user has known how to behave here; and on the other hand, every new user in recent times who has held forth on these off-topic nonsense issues has ultimately left a wake of drivel and had to be expunged for trolling after much unnecessary lenience. So I'd say we just play "Whack-a-Mole" with them now--they pop up, we whack 'em without fanfare. No second, third, fourth chances to dilute our bandwidth.

Your first post = troll post, your first post = your last post and your last post = deleted.

I don't want to go. I want to stay. Just tell me which section is for similar threads and I'll post them next time there.

Paul already answered your question, and you acknowledged him. No point in rehashing this debate. You're a "gone guy."

I'd give the guy a small benefit of doubt on this occasion. This website is a very sophisticated scam, it would give a very solid appearance to the uninitiated.

SithLord [best to use a solid name to avoid ridicule here], it's one thing to point to such a website and raise a discussion, but the problem is then you are implying that you are sure it will gain some success, yet without any scientific rationale. If you wish to present one, then please do so, else ask it as a question - not a statement that we'll have to burn our physics books because you know best.

By all means point to it and ask 'what about this', but most times if it appears to transgress the laws of thermodynamics then it's likely not worth posting.

Chris,

It's not fusion. He's off-topic. He hasn't written an on-topic post to date, and Paul has warned him before. It's a prima-facie case of trolling. End of story.

Now whoever wants to debate the dubious science of BlackLight or whatever it was can take that debate to a venue where it is on-topic, which would be somewhere else other than any of the forums at www.fusor.net.

I can't dispute it IS off topic and I'm not taking sides. Does he realise it's off topic, though?

A consequence to increased publicity (following WSJ article?) is increased public attention, which is the aim after all. Whether Joe Public looking in then understands the difference may be a learning/teaching exercise. It's all seems sci-fi fantasy to them and the acclimatisation curve can be very steep.

Best to simply say - SithLord, sorry mate, this ain't fusion and there's no section in this forum for this kind of material. Look up 'fusion power' on wiki as a primer and come back if you've got questions on anything ON THAT PAGE, and not on anything else!!
