    It all seems pretty clear to me, but then that perspective may prove to be somewhat biased since I'm the one that understands what I'm talking about, yes?

    Even now you refer to it as "fantastic" when diamagnetism and adiabatic logic circuits are ever increasingly routinely/widely discussed in the field of physics.

    You see, from my perspective it's not so much that you asked as much as it was that you condemned, ostracized and derided me when all that I was doing was offering suggestions of potentially beneficial solutions that would address the problems/shortcomings with the Tesla's technology that had presented themselves...just trying to help, that's all...But all that I get for my efforts are "ad hominem*" attacks by individuals, as well as "bandwagoning**" members, all apparently intent on undermining my desires to inspire innovations of existing technologies that are all to obvious to me while somewhat obscure to you (just as every other innovation I've pointed out has been right under your noses all along, you just do not look at/perceive things as I do).

    Admittedly, it did not occur to me that some (if not all) of the suggestions I offered may, either directly or indirectly, contradict the years of education/experience the members here may have undergone and even proffered from, but the one thing that any of your educations/experiences should have taught were that things change/there's always something new to be discovered.

    That, and you've all repeatedly, aggressively, professed to knowing what you're talking about, so whom was I to question your credentials, though you often demanded mine.

    I'm off to dinner for now, perhaps I'll stop by again later.

    You know, you/the members here succeeding in having me banned from the site...that sort of "win" (if it could be considered as such).

    I thought I should chime in here with a few points.

    First of all, I'd (we'd) like this forum to be an open and welcoming place. That means allowing a diversity of opinions and respecting individual members. However, we also have to think about the forum as a whole. If a single member is bringing down the overall quality of the forum for everyone else, something needs to be done about it.

    Second, this can be a place for the occasional technical discussion when appropriate. (I know I can sound a bit nerdy at times.) But you don't need to have a Ph.D. in physics (or to have even seen it in high school) to participate in those discussions, to ask a question or to offer an opinion. However, if you make a scientific assertion, it should be based in this universe and on currently accepted science. Talk about pseudo science (or at best speculative science), such as breaking the laws of thermodynamics, is beyond the scope of this forum. You might try physicsforums.com or some place like that.

    So we now come to the issue at hand which is just-an-allusion/1n5p1r4t10n. Allusion, I'm sorry that you feel ganged-up on, but you have realize that you have caused an inordinate amount of problems. The main issue for me, of course, is that you are almost always off topic. But it goes beyond that. You seem to be unable to follow simple instructions that are common sense to most. You claim to have an understanding of advanced physics, yet your posts have clearly demonstrated an ignorance or misunderstanding of the most basic physical principles. Such posts confuse members who aren't particularly science/engineering types, and frustrates those who are. Your writing style involves extremely long run-on sentences consisting primarily of unnecessary words and often meaningless phrases that exhibit a kind of pseudo-intellectualism. It's bad enough that -- and I honestly mean no offense by this -- it's bad enough that it suggests a sort of mental imbalance. Perhaps you should look into getting some help.

    There is, however, another possibility. You could just be trying to punk us, and are intentionally trolling the site. I've tried my best to give you the benefit of the doubt. But given the extraordinary number of issues you appear to have, coupled with evidence that you may be posting from some woman's hacked computer, I'm leaning towards a ban.

    I don't get emotional or pissed like some, but I do have a finite amount of time and patience. And whether intentional or not, through prank or mental illness, you've shown classic troll behavior and it has to stop.

    I suppose I'll wait for input from others before the door finally closes.

    Doug, I think you've hit the nail on the head.


    I'm sure you thought that today's embellishment of this paragraph would go unnoticed by the staff - wrong.


    From The Subtle Art of Trolling

    I think you tick more than a few of these boxes...


    Furthermore, from Troll (Internet) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This behaviour sounds pretty familiar...


    Finally, remember the original l33t 5pe4k username? I think it is pretty obvious what we have here. Case closed.
