She has alleged that she has made breakthroughs in two fields. This is
a very different state of affairs.

Look, if Visser would just publish her results -- I'll take a posting
on the internet with sufficient detail to reproduce the experiments --
and let people freely try to reproduce what she has done, we could all
know, for ourselves without any need for appeal to authority, whether
the stuff is real or whether it is crap. As it is, Visser has taken to
operating with all the stigmata of fraud -- secret results, attempts
to get funding from high government officials without publishing
results, etc, etc.

Frankly, I find the whole thing has the smell of week dead fish, but
Visser could easily dispell the aroma any time she chooses. If she
won't give out data, that is HER FAULT, not ours.

Who cares? We are talking about VISSER here, not Charles Platt or
anyone else.
