Jones paper, Page 10, left column, lines 3-10:

Thanks, I missed that even though I searched this dog's breakfast of a paper.

Well that just about does it for me - these people are either completely inept and incompetent or they completely fail to understand the thermite reaction or they are utterly, utterly dishonest - maybe they are all three.

I just keep holding my head in my hands because I just cannot believe that anyone would be so stupid as to place a material compromising an iron oxide layer attached to a red layer containing aluminosilicates and Fe2O3 with an unknown Carbon based material, into a DSC, combust it and then claim a thermite reaction has taken place.

Game over - and truthers believe this <rule 10>? This paper wouldn't pass the criteria for publishing in the Beano let alone anything reputable.

Funny that. The original thread ran to 40+ pages. I guess even truthers know they can't defend this appalling paper.
