    Hi Billy T; that's a very understandable mistake as that is the case for LC circuits.

    I thought you would have forgotten the exchange by now

    It is great to see even a discussion about the merits of rational exploration of sets of facts, the established theory espoused, the further implications, and even outlandish possibilities if such and such turned true.

    This is the process of science. Only entrance qualification is a lust to learn.

    Oh I know there are people who know nil and postulate everything, but these people offer "someone" an exercise in debunking /learning/teaching logic, or presenting facts that the original poster was ignorant about... great work !

    The mere fact that a poster is at a science forum implies they are interested, and it should be the forums delight to discuss and correct, or get really excited and delve into places no man has gone before.

    Such a forum is a delight, but basically with the mod attitude here, this place is a drag, the pits.

    That is not in dispute.

    This is.
    If these alleged posts are real, then why don't you post them?

    Do you expect anyone to buy a pig in a poke? It seems to me you're afraid to let the cat out of the bag.

    Open the bag. Show us your records.

    Same point I made in post 80. Cangas, the ball is very definitely in your court. Hit it back or apologize to Pete.

    Pete, this is ridiculous. It's obvious why he doesn't post them: It's because they don't exist. You know it, I know it, he knows it, and so does everyone else who has followed the discussion. By asking him to explain why he says these things, you're giving him way too much credit. Worse, you're actually encouraging him in this behavior by treating his idiotic claim as though it had some merit.

    There is not a single good reason to ask him why he believes this, and every reason in the world to tell him to knock off the bullshit.

    To James R:
    If Cangas does neither of the things I suggest in my bold of post 84, I think there should be some serious consequences. Pete is in an awkward position to apply them, but you are not.
