How about a deal:
If you provide a demonstration of how your theory can be used to successfully factor the next RSA number, then we will all stop calling you a crackpot. If we are able to find a flaw in your theory that proves that it won't work (and work on arbitrarily large number in polynomial time), then you agree to never post to Usenet again.
Come on, James. It's in the bag. You are sitting here with a theory that you claim you have proven and that is so trivial that it's correctness is obvious, but you can't get anyone to take a serious look at it because of your reputation. Well, here's your chance. Without taking any risk, since you have already proven your theory, you can offer something of value (provided anyone actually believes you would stick to your word) in order to get others to do what you aren't capable of.
