The ex-forum member, chrismb (who no longer posts here because of your trolling behaviour) has already previously pointed out that no-one has ever claimed this. This is merely a construction of your divisive trolling that vernes has so accurately called you out on. This is [to paraphrase vernes] "a meticulously placed post that derails"
If chrismb were here to post on the subject, he would point out that when challenged on your misguided notion that DT fusion can be guaranteed
, providing there is enough collision energy in the reaction, you have previously replied;

b) the required energy to overcome the Coulomb barrier is many MeV of energy.
Required energy to overcome the Coulomb barrier for D+T reaction is about 90 kEV in center-of-mass frame when cross section is maximum and equal to 5 barns.
and that in making this statement you make, as plain as day, that you have no comprehension of the difference between 'Coulomb barrier' and 'quantum tunnelling', because your claim in your original post was that every
DT reaction above 90keV would result in a fusion event.
You demonstrate a knowledge of the physics discussed here that is extremely cursory and lightweight, as would be someone who has leafed through a huge book, occasionally stopping to collect a little information which, unfortunately, they have hopelessly misunderstood out of context. But some may think you must have read such a book as you can make a few statements from it that sound like you have.
It would seem that since chrismb left and pointed out that you are apt to make specifically disruptive posts aimed at derailing and enraging (and feel fully emboldened to do so because there is this stated position of not banning people), that others are slowly realising this reality. Perhaps one day a critical mass who understand this will be reached, and you will be 'ejected'. Perhaps, then, chrismb might even post again.
There are many here who disagree with each other, and many who may even say things which are wrong or right. But this is not the issue. 'Correctness' is not the issue. It is the meticulous intent you have to disrupt the discussion that others are having on subjects they have opinions on
with comments that are not your opinion, but merely contradictions of others.
Most importantly, you have not one slightest hint of interest in arguing out the pros and cons of the Polywell concept. You wish, merely, to disrupt others when they try to do so.
