Phorce if you like to analyze, then analyze this if you have hours to spare:
I tend to agree with your assessment. Schroeder should be an embarrassment to mainstream academia. Which is probably the reason behind him trying to erase all trace of his IRL (In Real Life) identity from Wikipedia, after he had made a point about telling those there how well educated he was by 'outing' himself previously, including linking to a page a Princeton
which had his photo on it. Then the photo disappeared from the Princeton site, and Schroeder went about erasing his steps. He claims someone was harassing him in real life. Is it any wonder? But my hunch is that the head honchos at Princeton were embarrassed by his posturing on Wikipedia so they told him to maintain anonymity. Perhaps it was a combination of both?
Anyhow, on my pigwrestling page, you'll also notice lots of posts by user Phaedrus7. Take a look at the page for C. Leroy Ellenberger
and than look at the page history,
who has contributed most to that page. I know that Phaedrus7 IS Ellenberger, but of course I am prevented from alluding to that fact on Wikipedia because of its 'no outing' rules.
Both Schroeder and Ellenberger have a history of attempting to slur the name of David Talbott, yet both deny any conflict of interest (COI). I declared my potential COI BEFORE I began trying to make changes to Talbott's biography. As you will see by the collated information on the pigwrestling page, it was a futile exercise. Not only do I not have the time required to do battle with these zealots, no-one can get around the barrage of backup they'll call in when challenged.
Now to get back to the comments by Phorce, take a look at the Plasma Cosmology talk page, under the subheading "Expert needed
" and you'll find this gem:
Wikipedia Talk Page on Plasma Cosmology wrote:An anonymous editor just requested an expert to look at this article. I certainly do not not object to further work by an expert, but I doubt that you will be able to find anyone on Wikipedia more expert on this specialized sideline of science than ScienceApologist and myself, who have already contributed heavily. --Art Carlson (talk) 15:14, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
What a croc! Carlson would do well not to align himself too closely with Schroeder. Schroeder has not published a single scientific paper to my knowledge, though he is listed as a co-author of a couple of SDSS (Sloan Digital Sky Survey) papers along with a HUGE number of co-authors. This could hardly amount to expertise in Plasma Cosmology, nor in fact in any cosmology.
