Hilarious email from this troll[edit]

This was an old email I recieved from Abd:

I’m seeing a woman, in her 70s like me, and her children ran an “intervention,” believing that she was getting involved with some

dangerous lunatic, because of the RationalWiki article. Tossing mud can cause real-world harm, but that is only the beginning. The field I am

working in — I have been published under peer review in, in a significant mainstream journal — has possibilities; if the reported effect could be made to work reliably (which is difficult), it might save a trillion dollars per year. Every year that the necessary research for that is postponed, then, may have a lost opportunity cost of a trillion dollars (times the probability of success). The effect is real, but at this point it is still a laboratory curiosity. My stand is not for “belief,” but for scientific research to clarify open issues, which is funded and under way. If the RW article and other activities ends up harming that cause …. the cost could be enormous.

His "research" could "save a trillion dollars a year!" folks.

Also hilariously, a woman googled his name and found this article, describing him as a potential "dangerous lunatic". Tobias (talk) 18:48, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Spelling errors[edit]

"the sects extreme right wing founder" -- needs apostrophe

Done, thanks. In future, please feel free to make simple changes like this yourself. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 00:59, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
