Wall for Ron Maimon

Are you still participating here?
Dec 19, 2014 by physicsnewbie
@WolfinSheepSkin: I couldn't do that, I'd forget most of them. I could do "most important papers to me in the last few days", but it's a vanity project, best to look at what is interesting to you, given your interest.
Nov 17, 2014 by Ron Maimon
Hey Ron, why don't you make a list of the most important (to you) published papers?

Is it possible for admins such as yourself to delete and modify the comments of other users?
Nov 8, 2014 by physicsnewbie
Thanks Ron,

yes I was annoyed about these comments and thought such things should not be let sitting on PO too, so I agree with hard-deleting them.

Dimension10 also hid the ridiculous answer there, and I ensured that your comment which contains useful requests to clarify the question is still there (I linked to it on SE). Not sure if you want to edit it because the bad answer is now gone ...

BTW thanks for the recent bunch of immensely nice posts, in particular the answer to this question


Linking to PO answers of imported questions quite often helps in making the OP register here ... :-)

I don't know, nothing happened from PO's side, maybe it was just a bug on his side.

Hi Ron, when creating a submission, please give the submitter a link to the submission.
Sep 16, 2014 by dimension10
Glad to hear that. Does it mean that it was accepted for review? Where can I now find it?

The deleted comments were not physics comments at all - you didn't even read them, so I appreciate if you don't defend something that you haven't even read.
Sep 9, 2014 by dimension10
Yes, they have deleted some of my comments, but it is nothing.
I do not want to get involved in your discussion, but you discuss my personality and this becomes available for anyone. So I am just defending me by saying what I am for and what I am against.
It is a good idea of yours not to create a getto for me and for the like.
Concerning Euclidean analogs, it can be discussed, but for the moment it is not convincing to me. There is no my intuition about particle radiation. There is a clear mistake. The radiation field carries away energy momentum and it is the radiation field who should be involved in the energy balance, not the near field (self-induction). Nobody of you wants to discuss this mistake. But maybe I am wrong.

I wrote a sarcastic review because I have lost any hope to discuss the matter professionally. Everything turns into discussing my personality (my knowledge, my (dis)honesty, etc.). We could have resolved my mistake, if any, long ago.
