  1. I’d bet $5 that the words “atomic” and “nuclear” are either tagged spammy or banned outright.

  2. Sad situation, but the sarcasm provided an excellent belly laugh, thanks for that!!

    On a side note and totally unrelated, I would be interested in your comments on this, from a company in my home city, Winnipeg Canada. Intelligence software they claim can help with electicity pricing/forecasting, I suppose http://www.invenia.ca/index.html
    From today’s Winnipeg Free Press http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/business/data-power-nice-mix-for-firm-238687251.html

      1. But they are innovating!!! like the MBA trash outfitting the Idiocracy’s favorite “human” dumping ground called Walmart with solar panels.

        Can’t have the physicists piling up otherwise the central bank cons wouldn’t be able to steal so readily.

  3. NRC – another central bank crime organization funded by the Idiocracy called The Stupid Taxpayer of which there is no accountability. The capital and operating costs of large LWR’s remain a total mystery in thanks to these thugs disguised as do-gooders.

    It would be abolished immediately except for the big gov loons who love these worthless scam outfits like the NSA and such.

  4. Every single comment I’ve tried to post to that article has gotten the same spam filter message, regardless of content. I’m betting it’s a software bug.

  5. There are so many sites now where the sole purpose of comment section is to agree with the post/and/or provide a social interaction space for like minded individuals. They are usually policed solely by substandard ideologues and/or bots. I think this is another example.

    It gives the illusion of truth, openness and reason without all the messy and difficult reference, thought and argument that it requires.

  6. “There are so many sites now where the sole purpose of comment section is to agree with the post/and/or provide a social interaction space for like minded individuals”

    I agree.

  7. That is why as much as it pains me to read things that Bas and Starvinglion write I applaud Rod for allowing others views.

      There is certainly a balance between accepting the annoyance and deciding to screen certain types of commentary, but I tend to err on the side of more discussion rather than less. Bots are not allowed, but real people can generally express any view they want as long as they do not cross rather fuzzy lines and harmfully attack anyone other than me. (I have a thick skin.)

      I don’t know if you have noticed, but Bas seems to have decided that he was wasting his time here. There has been no effort on my part to stop his posts, but his production level has dropped off rather dramatically.

      I just searched; it looks like his last comment was on 12/17.

      1. Whatever happened to Luke from down under ?

        Is he still hosting his ‘oh my god’ Fukusjima panic site ?

        He used to come and visit here once in a while.

        1. @Daniel

          I think you are talking about Luke Weston. The last I heard, he was busily working on graduate school and probably has figured out that he needs to focus in order to complete that important endeavor.

      2. Almost to the day when Angry_American (or whatever his handle is) showed up.

        I more than half suspect that A_A was our paid warranty replacement after breaking BAS. But then, I tend toward paranoia — not personal paranoia. I don’t think anyone cares enough to be out to get me, but paranoia about the motives of others.

    1. Well, he does have the word “scraps” in there. Could an overly ambitious censor program be taking it out because it contains “crap”? I used to run into that — somewhere. It wasn’t that particular word, but there was a combination of three words which were a term of art for the subject matter of the forum, and the forum censor software saw some socially unacceptable word in the midst of the letters, even though they were three separate words.

      Bad regular expression. No cookie.
