Why so interested?
Do you plan to give his name to some "activists", so they show in front 
of his home to "protest"?

The basis are simple:
anything scientific must be repeatable from others.
Without the data, the detail on how they were gathered and so on, it is 
impossible to repeat the experiment.
No data, no trust.
No data, you article is bullshit.

This is the same old mantra.
I remember you that X-files is so '90.

Because they were not disclosed.
But without disclosure, the article is a fantasy work, not a scientific one.

Again, do you plan to raze his house?

I smell a racist in disguise.

In science there is no "Innocent until proven guilty", there is the 
reverse "fraud until proven right".
If the accused refuse to disclose how he did his research and obtained 
his results, so it is possible to replicate them, it is guilty for 
default and a fraud until proved different.
