No. Once upon a long ago, I used to chase those morons down. I only do that these days if they invent something grossly egregious.

Less than an hour and a half.

i'm guessing he meant to be 'Heisenberg'.

If you're going to try and be clever, it helps if you actually are.

Heisenberg is the name he used for one of the sock puppet accounts he created here.
It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth.
I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

Except at the TSD boards he spells it Hesenberg. I guess he's uncertain about the spelling... I'll get my coat.

Absolutely classic hoaxie behavior, though, and give the lie to any claims he had of intellectual honesty. After being shown and, after much back and forth, tacitly agreeing that his "2.4" figure was WRONG, when he rolled out his well-practiced argument at a new board he went right back to the original.

Basically, he lied to them. As I said earlier; the only thing most of the hoaxies get out of discussion is a chance to rehearse. And sometimes, at least in the braver ones, they learn a few new buzz words they can show off to look (for a few minutes) like they know what they are doing.

He's here now:  https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=854330

I'd be almost tempted to join. The cambot hasn't learned human speech yet...his posts are so meandering, disorganized, and badly phrased their informational content is essentially nil. But on the other hand, I've already seen the trick this pony can do. I think I'll go practice my trumpet some more.

Looks like he's already reduced to complaining that no-one understands him and everyone is wrong.

I'm really enjoying watching him being spanked by people who aren't even space buffs. Proving his arguments are so bad they can't win over an unbiased general audience.

To his credit, he did get a couple things right. They were things everyone else already knew, and no-one debated, but still....that puts him one up on IDW.
