This one needs the closest of BLP attention[edit]

He used to go to work on his Wikipedia article (e.g.) when it existed. It's been deleted, but I'll see if I can dredge up the old article text for our use under CC-by-sa - David Gerard (talk) 13:53, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

This is the good bits of that text - David Gerard (talk) 15:19, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

What does this mean[edit]

In 2008 the Securities and Exchange Commission revoked the registration of multiple registered securities including Omni Nutraceuticals, Inc. based on repeated failure to file required periodic reports with the SEC. The last report the SEC received reported a net loss of $7,032,000 in a period of nine months.<ref>http://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/2008/34-58764.pdf</ref>

It means that those companies can no longer issue stock or bonds because they did not fulfill the requirements. Was that your question? The Present King of France (talk) 21:58, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
Oh, it just sounded odd b/c Omni wasn't mentioned in-article. Thanks for the clarification attempt, tho. The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 22:03, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed that, too. Maybe the connection was lost in an edit. The Present King of France (talk) 22:07, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Articles in Google Scholar[edit]

Klee Irwin co-authored some papers published in "Classical and Quantum Gravity" which is a legitimate peer-reviewed established physics journal. I'm not saying he doesn't have credibility issues (at least based on his previous business) but publications in a legitimate science journal seems a far way to go if he was nothing but a fraud.

The article contains several wrong information[edit]

The article contains several wrong information by describing Klee Irwin as pseudoscience proponent although he has several published papers in peer-reviewed physics journals. It is unethical to call Klee Irwin as a fraudster without one single evidence in the article such as any court findings. The article should be deleted because it is not rational and it is against the policy of the rational wiki. — Unsigned, by: Davidsamhon / talk

I think this counts as evidence of selling misbranded products, which if intentional would be fraud (and it seems too consistent to be unintentional). Just because he's a physicist doesn't mean everything he writes about every area of science is automatically valid, and I can't find any peer reviewed papers by Irwin about cold fusion or panpsychism. --Annanoon (talk) 17:31, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
