To be fair to him, this is one of his better posts in
sci.physics.electromag because at least he's talking about Faraday's
law and moving magnets, and he is asking a question at the end of his
full post. So there's scope to at least discuss his points with him.

It's on topic in sci.physics.electromag but not in sci.math and
sci.chem, so someone there can flag the post under "other" as cross-
posting irrelevant topics.
