Sammy, why do you spam sci.physics with articles from popular science articles
and spam my posts with off topic comments such as the one above?
Are you motivated to kill threads that might get some folks to question conventional wisdom by inserting stupid off topic posts.
As Archimedes Plutonium pointed out a few years ago, it appears that when someone's posts begin to get a little intellectual action, you tend to flood sci.physics with a batch of your popular science articles so that they dominate the newsgroup.
Have you talked to your shrink about this compulsion?
