I looked at PIBOT. Complete drivel. English may not be his native
language (I am guessing), but even so this is a claim with absolutely no
substance, and nothing in the writing to indicate that he knows what he
is talking about.

People: Does this happen frequently? I mean, is there a sub-genre of
people who claim that thay have done it, like this guy Rick Geniale?
Maybe we should produce a list of sites that are obviously cuckoo, so we
can avoid wasting our time reading them?
