I generally appreciated your comments on RADSAFE, though very rare recently. So please allow me to somewhat disagree with your recent comment...

It has happpened a few weeks ago that the (in the US, but not in Europe) well known anti-nuclear "activist", who makes his living and his reputation by his scientifically unacceptable claims, his participation and membership in fake organisations like "European Commission on bla, bla, bla" and others, started to bother RADSAFE. As you can find out on Google he is employed by US lawyers in cases concerning radioactivity. 

So what? Should we scientists accept this ridiculing of our profession  by this person? The latest ridiculing is to present us with his "measurements" at Fukushima. Are we not allowed to answer to them? Are we not allowed to question his "research"? 

Please allow me to comment that your approach is wrong - you should have asked the person who started the trouble to refrain from more postings.

Best wishes,
