    accused you of what sir? I see some things, say how it is. Isn't that how you work a lot of the time?

    I had refrained from commenting on your latest incarnation, but as you have chosen to mount an attack on me, I will now comment.

    If you continue to misrepresent science on public forums, you will get corrected by people with a science education. That is not bullying. Nor is it bullying to point out when you misrepresent who you are, in order to break forum rules.

    On the latter point, the only progress I see from you is a belated willingness to admit who you are viz. Gareth Meredith, alias Reiku , Geon, Simon's Cat, Graviphoton, Dubbelosix etc etc etc. But you are still posting skeins of mathematical knitting, a lot of it nonsense and out of any context. It is a waste of the time of anyone who has not already realised who you are and what you are like. That I expect is why your latest link to physics stack exchange leads to message saying the thread has been taken down by the moderators. You can cry victim all you like but there is a reason why you are banned everywhere.

    I mean, just look at this thread, from under a year ago: https://forum.cosmoquest.org/showth...r-Radiation-and-Why-I-think-Big-Bang-is-Wrong
    ending in your ban (after a mere 7 weeks of membership - under that name).

    And then there is this, containing an exposé of your inability to do simple calculus: https://forum.cosmoquest.org/showth...-Bremsshralung-radiation-from-Sonoluminscence

    Why would we think you have magically changed in the last 9 months? After all, you have not in the previous ten years.

    I am better than this, the mods are even better at it. They could have helped, but perhaps they were in it together. Respect.

    I leave today, not because I have been bullied to the point of no return, but to the point I won't.


    I wish you all the best and again, I forgive you.

    ScienceInquisitor (aka Reiku, Simons Cat, Gareth Meredith, and many many more aliases):

    Your permanent ban from sciforums has been reinstated once again, following this most recent incursion using yet another sock puppet. Ordinarily, I would just remove all of the material you managed to post prior to your identity being discovered (again), and be done with it. However, I will take this opportunity to explain a few things to you, in case there is some residual confusion in your mind.

    First: Permanent means permanent. Your behaviour on this forum was sufficiently objectionable to attract a permanent ban. You received many many warnings and a number of temporary bans prior to being banned permanently, but you chose not to alter your behaviour to comply with our site posting guidelines. You are banned permanently because of your own actions, not for any other reason. This is not bullying, or a vendetta on the part of the moderators. You were unable or unwilling to comply with our posting guidelines, despite much guidance and friendly advice. In the end, you attracted so many official warnings that you were permanently banned.

    One might hope that you would take something away from the experience of being banned repeatedly on many different discussion forums by moderators operating independently of one another, but it seems you are either unable or unwilling to take advice on board and to take responsibility for your own behaviour. Instead, it seems that you consider yourself a victim, and how people react to you is always somebody else's fault, never your own.

    You started this current thread with an apology for past behaviour. The thing is, we've seen that part of your schtick before, too. Here's the thing: for an apology to be worth anything, it must be (a) sincere, and (b) backed up by actions that show it is sincere. Otherwise, it is merely empty words.

    We have seen the same pattern of behaviour from you many times now. You create a sock puppet identity to sign up to the forum, usually these days to spam material you have previously posted elsewhere. When your sock puppet identity is unmasked, you protest that you just want one more chance, that you've turned over a new leaf and learned a lot, and so on and so forth. Then you typically spend a lot of time focussing on personal matters, complaining about victimisation and supposed bullying by others. When your ideas are criticised, you complain that you are being bullied, rather than responding to the substance of the objections raised against your pseudoscience.

    As far as content goes, you typically post your own pseudo-physics ideas, combined with mathematics that you have copied from somewhere else. If anybody takes time to analyse your postings, they usually find that they make no sense. The topics start like they are the middle of a conversation rather than the start of one. There are many holes and errors in the maths: steps do not follow from one another, or there are basic errors. When the maths is correct, it is usually either basic theory found in many places or else it is plagiarised from an unknown original source.

    There has never been much evidence of any formal training in physics on your part. Rather, what comes across is a pretense at such training. It's like you think you can pull the wool over the eyes of people who have actually studied the kind of stuff you post. I don't know what you think you're achieving. Perhaps it pushes your buttons when you manage to bamboozle people who don't have the training in physics and/or maths to unpack your nonsense. Perhaps it makes you feel superior. Perhaps this is compensation for how you feel in your "real life" (though that is speculation). The point is: there's no reason why a forum like this one should pander to your need to be thought more intelligent than others.

    Over the years, you have been given a lot of good advice. Indeed, you've been given good advice by several other posters in the current thread. What it boils down to is this: stop pretending to do physics and maths. If you want to do it, go off and learn about it properly. Pretending is a waste of everybody's time, not least your own. Why fritter your life away trying to con people?

    In your first post here, you said if you're not welcome here, you'll go away and not bother us again. So let me make it clear: our patience with you and our welcome for you here ran out for you long ago, and you only have yourself to blame for that. I believe you've made this sort of statement before, too - that you'll go away and not return. Well, let's see if this time will be any different than all the other times.

    You have asked (again) for "another chance". But you were given many additional chances in the past, and you never changed, no matter how much you said you had changed. Your chances here have run out. You burnt your bridges.

    If any further evidence is needed that you are not sincere in your claim to want to start with a clean slate, it is the very fact of signing up here repeatedly under sock puppet names, trying to hide as long as you can until your identity is unmasked yet again. Somebody who was sincere in wanting to come back might sign up under a new name (perhaps an obvious one) and send a private message to the moderators to explain himself, to beg forgiveness and to ask politely to be allowed to post again, before posting anything to the public forums. From memory, there may have been one occasion where you tried that approach, and you were allowed back for a time, although I may be confusing you with somebody else. Whatever the case, if you were allowed back in the past (which I suspect you were) then you quickly reverted to type thereafter and showed that you had no sincere wish to chance anything about your behaviour in your new incarnation. So, we've tried giving you "one more chance" and it has demonstrably not resulted in different behaviour than before. It seems to me that there is no reason to expect that, were you ever allowed back here again, anything would change. Like I said, you burnt your bridges.

    I hope you can take away something useful from your experience here. I hope you will stay away from this forum in future. I hope you will stop wasting your time on internet forums trying to big-note yourself with pretense. They aren't high hopes, however, given past performance.

    Best wishes, Gareth. I really hope that your "real life" is not as pathetic as your time on internet forums has been. If you're in your early 30s, as you claim, there's still time to change yourself for the better. Good luck with that.

    I did that once; then I got falsely accused by the person I just forgave.

    I think I've expressed a similar sentiment the previous time Curvature visited us. I can only support these wishes. The internet is a place where one can be "wilder", "crazier", and "more extreme" than one really is in real life; I genuinely hope that's the case with Gareth too.

    Yes Gareth, it's always somebody else's fault. Never yours. Eh?

    i can recognize(teen developmental emotional self actualization disruption)
    you read like an open book
    i hope you get professional help so you can work your way through it and get it resolved
    from experience of people who have similar issues to yours i would guess you also have some gender identity issues. that is very confusing stuff and really does need modern psychiatric guidance.
