We tell him, but he doesn't listen

Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

An error in the Middle East Economic Digest story about the Dubai PRT project gave 1.2 km as the planned length of PRT guideway, rather than the length of the area PRT is to serve.

But that hasn't stopped *** from repeating the error:

Oct 22:

A 1.2 kilometer "network" (yawn) Source

Oct. 23:
Wow!!!... that works out to US $100 million for the 1.2 kilometers Source

People have tried to tell him he's wrong (comment 1), so by knowingly repeating the error he has converted the mistake into a lie. Not really a surprise.
