Thanks, and 2 more small questions.[edit]

Hi Wrongfilter:

Thanks for your answer to my weak equivalence scenario question. I just have two more questions:

1. So assume that the accelerometer is also made of iron, then presumably the accelerometer experiences the same force as the iron weight and is accelerated in exactly the same way and so will register no force. Could we argue, then, that the magnetic force satisfies the weak equivalence principle for all ferromagnetic substances and so is really not a force for those substances?

2. The more disturbing question: since electromagnetic force counteracts gravitational force everywhere on the surface of Earth to prevent us from falling through the Earth, and it acts all matters on the surface of Earth regardless of their compositions. Could we say, then, that the electromagnetic force satisfies the weak equivalence principle and really is the same as gravity (which is, of course, blatantly false)?

Thanks so much,

Austrian caves[edit]

Hi do you know if the Austrian caves person is the same as User:A. B./Sandbox20 or Wikipedia talk:Reference desk/Archive 79#Cross-wiki vandal also very active on our reference desk pages? If your description is accurate, the behaviour seems suspicious as this user also liked to ask obscure and often nonsense questions, particularly on language (why can't X be a word for Y) but also on a variety of other thing partially giving up on the language thing when people began to ignore them. In addition they also liked to create clearly inappropriate/vandalism redirects. I believe they were active on both the German and English wikipedia. However the IP always geolocated to Germany initially to NORDRHEIN-WESTFALEN (I don't know how accurate German geolocations tend to be but it usually seemed to be this) although I think this may have changed later whereas this is from Austria. Also I thought I saw the German IP a few weeks ago but I didn't really pay much attention. Nil Einne (talk) 22:20, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Probably not the same. The cave person is actually quite harmless, s/he just likes to wind people up. This can be rather frustrating if you invest some effort into researching a question in good faith, only to be mocked afterwards. I just hope I wasn't wrong in identifying that IP with our troll... --Wrongfilter (talk) 09:13, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
