I like to mention some recent activity on the subject of this blog. First I like to refer to a (type A) simulation from Michel Fodje in python (1), which very neatly shows how CSHS violation could be obtained in practice while having detectors that operate on 100%. Just like in real experiments one has to match the detector countings afterwards using some timestamp algorithm. Michel shows that just a fraction of 0.01% of single particles leaving the emitter and obscuring the countings can result in a CHSH of 2.828, which is equal to the QM value.
Current discussions on Joy Christians work can be found on the Blog of Paul Snively (2). Paul is intrigued by the theory from Joy, and suggests to validate the formulas Joy uses in 'CAS': software that can resolve (simplify) formulas that contains variables and symbols. Richard Gill, one of the most active opponents of Joy, is recently blocked on the Blog. Paul Snively somewhat motivates this in one of the discussion posts - and of course he owns the blog - but I would say one normally is not expelled from a discussion for the given reasons.
Anyway, the discussions are interesting.
