A while back, I answered yet another perpetual motion question. The post essentially asks whether or not you can extract work from Brownian motion, which I consider a good question because of how widely spread is misunderstanding of thermodynamic noise and the importance of the temperature of a thing's (electromagnetic) environment. Unfortunately, the accepted (and bountied!) answer is at best misleading and by my analysis is just wrong.
What, if anything and aside from downvoting, should/can we do about this and similar answers?
