[ppy] maybe, but that is irrelevant ... as long as he has opted to
It seems the forum needs not only more professional focusing on ontology
some patience to others positions, worldviews, and projects.
Dennis Thomas must be a good researcher, maybe, with some funny ideas
semantics, ontology, and knowledge. And he looks to be frank promoting
project as much as it is persistently done with CL, IKL, etc.
As a private investigator, he might say more interesting ideas than the
and stale things one used to hear from the academic investigators.
It should be observed that most radical breakthroughs the science and
technology expect from private researchers, like William Dobelle, who was
the first neuroscientist, inventing an operative brain implant, a
brain-computer interface, to restore sight, acquired blindness.
The same rule applies to fundamental ontology and its critical
application, semantic web.

Subject: [ontolog-forum] ontospam (was: Re: Current Semantic Web Layer
Allow me to suggest that we refrain from responding to such obviously
nonsensical and vacuous expressions of institutionalized ignorance as
the recent postings on this thread. My response, after some cursory
checking to verify that the claims are indeed as nonsensical as they
sound (in this case, for example, the fact that the world of Thomas,
Ballard and KFI is entirely self-referring and self-contained, with
no connection to any scholarly or published work for the last 20
years; and that if its claims were even partly correct, it would by
now have put Oracle out of business) is to simply create an email
filter to auto-trash such stuff. Arguing with these people is like
arguing with creationists about evolution.
Let me propose that we adopt the term "ontospam" for this kind of
input, in order that we can all save one anothers' time by using it
to categorize such inputs quickly and precisely. It is pretty easy to
recognize, see for example
