What a bizarre use of the word "libel" !!

(i.e. in the long retort to Dr. Stenberg)

In other words,  kkollins re-defines words to suit his narcissistic
needs, not only in neuroscience, physics, etc., but also in the
vocabulary of law.  This insistence on a private language no doubt
underlies much of his life-long difficulty in getting other people to
accept what he writes as meaningful and worth reading.  Probably
impedes his understanding of what others write, also...
