In a rather non-linear manner, yes. But then, I prefer my
art more blunt, so to speak.

It sure doesn't sound that way.

I don't think so. Even the best crypto-trolls let go and
laugh in their victims' faces eventually. Llort (whatever)
was an example of one with poor self-control.

He likely does. The only hint I have (another consistency
thing) is that he apparently cannot or will not muster the
technical expertise to take instrumented readings as asked.
In my (limited) experience, the likely reasons are: that he
does not trust the scientific method for some foggy reason,
that he thinks we are asking him to expend his time looking
for "bogus" data that will misdirect him from seeing the
"real" signals, or that doing the tests will pull the
support out from under his persecution complex (assuming he
But I don't know any other way to respond; characteristics
of signals in the EM spectrum are well-known, and asking for
data is the only way I know to get a handle on his
News2020, if you read this, please do take the trouble to
take some measurements as suggested if for no other reason
to eliminate the possibility that we're right.
Assuming we're "in on it", you don't have to trust anyone
but yourself to make the effort. Recall that you also don't
have to trust "store-bought" test equipment as building your
own is actually very simple, if slightly tedious, starting
with a pile of parts and a soldering iron.
Assuming we aren't, understand that the technical advice
we offer is in the spirit of helping you clear away the
chaff so you can pinpoint the cause(s) of what you
experience. Techy types consider it a duty to spread the
wealth of knowledge we've acquired; that's what this group
is for, after all. Also, if we're innocent, isn't it your
duty to help us understand the nature of a threat we too may
be exposed to?
