This has "crackpot" written all over it. Josh Cherry 03:25, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)

That, and most of it looks like copyvio. However I think this thing deserves a page -- Google seems to indicate that the paranormal folks do take this stuff reasonably silly. But a complete NPOV rewrite is surely in order. --Fastfission 04:11, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Speedy. Follow the link through to the American Anti-Gravity site. I did, and wasted 10 minutes of my time reading nonsense and ads. Speedy for patent nonsense. -Vina 04:22, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Latest news at Hutchinson's website are from June 23, 2002. Obviously, the hoax run out of gas, but it deserves its place in the history, describen in a NPOV way. Mikkalai 04:33, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • If Mikkalai can NPOV it, keep. Otherwise delete. Regardless, it is not patent nonsense according to our very specific definition. Rossami 05:16, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: It's true that it's believed and has some history, and if it gets improved by the end of voting, I will change my vote. However, as it is now, it states this "effect" as fact and links us off to (more?) anti-gravity/fringe pages (the space screw comes to mind). Geogre 12:12, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
    • The rewrite is good. Reportage is always acceptable, to me, as it's NPOV and reports what the other folks believe. I think we could do with a link less on the externals, to keep down page rank boosting, but that's a minor matter. Keep. Geogre 14:51, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep! My first response when I see something crackpottish: check Wikipedia for an unbiased, scientific account. That's how I found this article in the first place. Yeah, it needs work, but just stick a disputed accuracy tag on it for now. - Omegatron 14:02, Sep 7, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. And add a point to the deletion policy that any article whose only weblink goes to American Antigravity must be deleted on sight. -- Pjacobi 21:59, 7 Sep 2004 (UTC)
    "censoring" information is exactly what makes crackpot stuff take off. "go to our website to find out what They don't want you to know!!!" providing a good source of unbiased non-crackpot info is the only way to keep it under control. - Omegatron 14:24, Sep 8, 2004 (UTC)
    It still has only weblinks to crackpots. We aren't the pseudoscience branch of dmoz. Anyway, I'll change my vote to abstain, honoring the efforts in re-writing the article. -- Pjacobi 19:04, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • I reworded it a bit, maybe it is a little better now. --Fastfission 02:09, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Current version is good, NPOV. Gwalla | Talk 03:51, 8 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Potentially interesting. Mark Richards 19:51, 9 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. As it exists now, it is exactly the kind of thing someone who came across a reference to "Hutchison effect" would like to know. Jallan 19:35, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep like this - crap but we need to know it's crap. The Land 09:49, 12 Sep 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete Either delete it or make sure that is aptly labeled as a hoax. Such as "HE Hoax"Cmin7b5 08:57, 24 September 2007 (UTC)[]
