Once again, you prove you don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground.That was Mike Bara, early February 2011, giving us his version of a scientific debate about the results of the WISE infra-red sky survey. Recall that the entire tottering edifice of hyperdimensional physics absolutely depends on a very large new planet being discovered in the outer reaches of the solar system.
I’d have more sympathy, but you’re too pathetic to even feel sorry for. Hopefully you didn’t reproduce.
Once again DouchePat, all you prove is how little you know about everything...
The WISE search hasn’t really even begun, will take years, and won’t even release its 1st snippett [sic] of data until April.
Well, in my opinion nothing could excuse Bara's junior high school playground debating style, but he may have had a point that it was premature, at that time, to declare that all hope of finding the missing planet was lost. John Matese and Daniel Whitmire—actual scientists instead of wannabees like Hoagland & Bara—were still betting on Tyche at that time. It took until just over a month ago for the WISE catalog to be released. NOT years, as Mike Bara confidently declared.

You can't prove a negative, but if that survey missed a huge planet out there in Oortville I'll eat my keyboard. Key quotes:
"The WISE catalog of the entire sky meets the mission's fundamental objective. The individual WISE exposures have been combined into an atlas of more than 18,000 images covering the sky and a catalog listing the infrared properties of more than 560 million individual objects found in the images." --NASA officeCase closed. Hyperdimensional physics is a myth. I assume Richard Hoagland and Mike Bara will now admit they were wrong, apologize for the naughty-schoolboy language, and shut up about it. They're honest scientists—right?
"Today, WISE delivers the fruit of 14 years of effort to the astronomical community." --Edward Wright, WISE principal investigator.
