sci.physics.fusion is a newsgroup for fusion and especial cold fusion....

Correct Scientific Terminology:
Hypothesis - a guess as to why or how something occurs
Theory - a hypothesis that has been checked by enough experiments
to be generally assumed to be true.
Law - a hypothesis that has been checked by enough experiments
in enough different ways that it is assumed to be truer then a theory.
Note: nothing is proven in science, things are assumed to be true.

Bad idea. It is an unmoderated group, and the same trolls who killed
sci.physics.fusion still look at it now and then so they can jump in and
trash it again should it come back to life.
While I appreciated their criticism of LENR, their insults and other bad
behavior was unnecessary.

PhysicsForums won't allow discussion of cold fusion. They consider it
crank physics. Basically, if you can't read about it in a textbook or a
journal article, then you can't post about it in PhysicsForums, which
makes it useless; I'll just read the dang textbook.
There exist a newsgroup, sci.physics.fusion, which was chartered for cold
fusion discussion to get it out of sci.physics in the same way that
sci.physics.relativity was supposed to attract away all the relativity
trolls. As you said would happen, the Guardians Of Proper Physics (GOPP)
did their damnedest to kill any and all discussion and shut it down,
which is sad because they had many experts in the LENR field posting
there before they polluted it with their mental fecal matter and vomit.
The problem is, the GOPPers came up with some good points now and again,
so which provides a service. While they could not be civil, they brought
out many good points. The bad thing is, once they ran out of rebuttals,
they went cyber-stalker. Yeah.
I see Robert Heater is still posting the "conventional fusion faq" on

How about archiving the trolls for future generations to laugh at?
