Hi Carl,

I'm with you in spirit, but James does not want to chat with people he already agrees with.  
His desire is for everyone to join him in his ... belief.  Until he gets that he will seek out forums 
like this one.  So the choices are to remain silent and tacitly validate his assertions on 
Radsafe, or to counter his misinformation.  IMHO, the world has seen far too much of the first 
sort of choice.  If the wise won't speak up, then fools will rule.

I agree with you that it is very tedious to watch arguments that were shown to be wrong a 
month ago endlessly recycled and lifted up as bright and new ideas.  If you really can't 
stomach it then make use of your email client to filter any messages to or from Salsman.  

However, it would be over far sooner with happier results if a large fraction of the list would 
speak up and say they think he's wrong (if indeed they do think so).  I imagine it would be 
very hard for Salsman to continue after hundreds of posts from various Radsafe experts tell 
him he's wrong.  

How about it Radsafe?  Either continue to endorse Salsman with your silence, or speak up at 
least once to put the DU circus to rest.

We need to perform a troll-ectomy up in this piece!

If James Salsman and his counter-respondents want to give continued
lip service to the perennially trollacious DU issue (troll material =
agenda-driven, ad-hominem, bankrupt of new informational value), why
don't you guys go start a forum or listserv of your own to handle just
the amateur DU debate!  The process of starting a list or forum is
free and easy these days.  Call it "DUSafe," get the irrelevant
flamewar on to your hearts' content, and stop sucking up all the
bandwidth on RADSAFE.

In fact, it would enormously benefit my perception of your 
motives--regardless of your stance on uranium--if you would have the
courtesy to do this.  I suspect there is a vast silent majority of
subscribers whose areas of interest and work have nothing to do with
the present kerfuffle and would also welcome the return to
professionalism and objectivity.
