Jed,  I have never stated nor thought that everything Rossi has said or done 
should be accepted without question.  So you are making that up.

I think there is significant evidence that some of his E-Cats worked & 
suggested several times it would be better to wait and see than dismiss 
everything with the certainty that you do.

Why do you think he is building a factory?  As I reported elsewhere there is 
evidence that he is doing so.

Jed,  I find your comment rather ironic considering your dismissal of 
everything that Rossi has done.

You imply that I must accept all new claims without question. That would be as 
irrational as rejecting all of them out of hand.

You imply that I am not capable of evaluating claims. If I can read McKubre and 
conclude that he is right, I can read the Penon report and conclude that Rossi 
is wrong.

The suggestion that a person who uses ordinary judgment and evaluates claim is 
somehow "ironic" is a new definition of irony.

Actually, I cannot imagine how a technically competent person could read the 
Penon report and not conclude that Rossi was wrong. Axil Axil and other Rossi 
supporters have finessed this problem by refusing to read the report. Robert 
Park used the same technique to reject all cold fusion results -- he refused to 
look at them. That's ironic!
