energy-nitwit by promoting concepts that are equally ill-considered,
is as funny as Usenet can get.

OK. Why don't you go ahead and enlighten us. Make it all perfectly clear.

Troll bait.

You shouldn't need any help from me. Just look around at all the
stalled two-bladed turbines, and all the manufacturers who continue to
produce them despite the lack of self-starting ability. As for my own
two-bladed turbine, I assume that it stalls regularly, but that the
invisible turbine fairy has been visiting as necessary to keep it
going for the last 12 years. My friend says that his turbine has a
third blade to minimize unequal blade loading. Why do people like him
persist with such strange ideas when they could come to Usenet and get
edumacated about the real reason for the third blade?

Now, I know you're thinking "Wayne, why not patiently explain some of
these things". Sometimes I do, to sincere newbs. But josepi is a
nym-shifting time waster. Most recently he argued that average daily
insolation numbers were phony because the sun doesn't shine 365 days a
year. It took what, a half dozen lengthy posts to dissuade him. Not
long ago he wanted to know about turbine calculations for a 10' rotor
with a 6' hub. Before that he claimed that one needs high-voltage
safety gear to measure voltage on home battery-charging turbines. I
don't have a lot of time for people like that, other than to see the
humor in some  of these discussions.

You mis-spelled 'gymmy boob'. I remember him as the self proclaimed
expert on everything. It seems to me he was posting out of Edmonton,
Alberta.
