Paul, I apologise if that came across too harshly (0300hrs BST) but I don't want any excuses for not taking your work seriously.

I agree with your other points: I'll take evidence from anywhere; I've just learned about periodicity analysis from wuwt but what he and Lubos appear to have done with mathematica doesn't seem close to your results. I had to wonder whether they just copied you without credit :P ? Glad to see sunspots disappearing from the scene.
