“The feedback is also a great motivator, because otherwise I would not know how my work is being received. Apart from known nutters who have been discarded by the profession, I get no negative comments now of any kind.”
We have checked every available website-traffic monitoring service and, although they all disagree with each other, none of them come anywhere near matching the figures reported by Ron. Typical data are:
Statscrop etc furnish additional information:
The backward links of aias.us are particularly interesting, and comprise largely Ron’s own blog and cheniere.org (perpetual-motionist and former aias member Bearden’s site), plus a political conspiracy site and an anti-Einstein site run by the loony Roger Anderton of Southampton (who has published a phenomenal 189 crackpot papers in the pseudoscientific rag, the General Science Journal).
Applying Ockham’s Razor, we surmise that the absence of negative comments (are there any positive ones from non-cranks) is due to the fact that nobody knows or cares about Ron or his theories. The blocking of comments on his blog is also a reasonable explanation for reduced criticism (duh!). We conclude that this kicks away Ron’s last crutch. That is, Google Scholar shows that nobody but Ron and his gang comment on his post-employment papers, leaving claimed feedback as the only remaining ‘evidence’. However, not only does ‘feedback’ (in fact, mere site hits) mean nothing if the intent of the visitor is not announced, but it has now become clear that the feedback is routinely inflated by an order of magnitude. Verily, it is a matter of ‘a nutter being discarded by the profession’. We call upon Ron to cease and desist from telling lies and causing embarrassment to himself and those who mistakenly awarded him a Civil List pension.
