To catch up on the Steorn phenomenon, read this blog post from last year.

I do not trust any miraculous technologies proposed by men with mullets.
Now, we just need to have Congress repeal the second law of thermodynamics so this can work.
I have been a fan and reader of Planetizen for more than a year, and have been an admirer and promoter of the site. So I was distressed to see you giving editorial space to the 3:53 minute advertising video for an allegedly "free" energy system. ("Perpetual Energy From Magnets") Given the complete absence of any supporting scientific evidence of trials of this purported technology, running such a piece insults both the intelligence of your readers and damages the credibility of every other article that you publish.
It would be thoughtful if you could provide your loyal readers with a detailed explanation about how your editorial process works, so that we can understand how such a piece of rubbish found its way onto your site. There have always been those who claimed to be able to create energy out of nothing, defying either the 1st or 2nd laws, or both, of thermodynamics, and not a single one of these claims has ever held up under careful experimental scrutiny.
Are we going to be subjected to stories about cars that run on water next? What are your editorial criteria? I'm not surprised to read claims like this one in unmoderated comments, but I do not understand how publishing such unsubstantiated claims advances the mission of Planetizen.
Would the editors care to respond?
