I'm following this for weeks now, but still not understanding. Otto has 
actual data and rational conclusions based on those data. I wish more health 
physicists and regulators were paying attention to his very important 
publications, most notably Health Phys. 98(3):515–536; 2010. I can't 
understand how science has become so irrelevant to scientists, while the 
'perception is reality' insanity continues to rule. The Atlas Shrugged 
movies continue to take on new relevance 53 years later after the 
publication of the book.

You all are intelligent people, but have not yet learned the decades old 
axiom of not feeding internet trolls. They are hungry always, and the more 
you feed them the more they want. Starve them of attention and they go 
elsewhere. As soneone noted we are REAL people to protect from REAL 
radiation hazards, can we stick to that, eh? Sorry if I'm out of line with 
this suggestion on this listserve. Flame on, trolls! I will ignore your 
blather while doing actual radiation safety work here.
