The following statement in the introduction (or whatever the paragraphs before the content list are called) is somewhat problematic. “Hopes faded due to the large number of negative replications, the withdrawal of many reported positive replications, the discovery of flaws and sources of experimental error in the original experiment, and finally the discovery that Fleischmann and Pons had not actually detected nuclear reaction byproducts.” 
When checking the sources for this comment (they are all listed on the cold fusion page under ), it turns out that 3 of them (I couldn’t access a copy of the fourth: Close, 1992) are all significantly negative/critical, accusing the two scientists of errors (or hypothesizing ways in which errors could be produced), or claiming that Pons and Fleischmann had made errors that lead to their results, but without actual evidence that such errors were produced in the original experiments. Someone else would need to check the fourth source to see if this is the same, but there really needs to be an edit along the lines of "other scientists claimed that Fleischmann and Pons had not detected nuclear reaction byproducts". At the very least, at the moment it’s inaccurate and misleading. (184.108.40.206 (talk) 10:55, 25 April 2017 (UTC))
By the way, do people realise that there are quite a few media articles and non-scientific literary works being used to make evaluations and conclusions about this topic? Because there is quite a bit - not just conclusions about the scientists being incompetent or making errors (lacking evidence), but viewpoints about the science itself.
