Not to say you're wrong, but would it really have been so hard for them to reply asking for details? Simply closing it without even a response is not appropriate, even if it is a useless report.

As someone else said, if it was publicly viewable it was not an appropriate place to put the details. Perhaps he should have offered them (I have reproducibility details, please contact me) but really, the onus for that was on them and not him.

You can maneuver with reaction wheels and a charged tether. You likely could get away with the most massive (ideally central) satellite using this, and the rest can be "pulled" using this new system relative to it.

It sounds like this whole scheme would then be limited by the power storage capacity of the satellites. Lots of solar, good batteries, or maybe RTGs (though not sure how much that would be accepted, in orbit)
