What is the \'official\' spelling of the Pilox inventor\'s name?


#1

I have seen three versions on here:

  1. Yoram Benit

  2. Yoram Benita

  3. Yoram Benitah

My research indicates there are at least three different Israelis, prominent in their respective fields with the three different versions of the name, with alternative spellings as above.

Yoram Benit is a venture capitalist with a company called Selarator.

There is a Yoram Benita in broadcast media.

There is a Yoram Benitah in Tel Aviv who is an actual medical doctor.

Aka1, from Israel, also posted on here on 11 November that he found a listing for a Yoram Benita in Israel who is a “certified trichologist”.

We know that Hebrew nanes, using a different alphabet from English, can be transliterated into the Roman alphabet in alternate ways.

We know that there are claims that the photos in the patent depict Yoram Benita, or Benitah, who allegedly used this device on himself. We know that person is balding, and at least before he got the claimed results, was about a Norwood 6.

By the way, the Dr. Yoram Benitah in Tel Aviv has a very thick head of curly hair in his photos in the internet. He obviously was never a Norwood 6.

Vraf, to put an end to this confusion, can you tell us once and for all, what us the official spelling or Hebrew-to-English transliteration of this guy’s name?

Don’t bother vraf. Roger that why do you care? Nothing is ready yet. Vraf will report in January and if he can answer more questions fine. They are not selling anything yet so why do you want that information? If you were so negative towards Nigam I would have understood. They are not selling anything yet so we’ll wait until then to make up our minds. The sooner the better also if it doesn’t work the word be out soon so no reason for you to be the authority on is matter. The results will speak for themselves. I am very optimistic but I will wait to see more pictures and a product to test till I make up my mind.

Guys I think we should leave this pillox thread to rest until vraf reports again. He obviously cares about hairloss sufferers so he will report when there is something to report.

Thing is, he may not know that himself.
(Just for an instance, my first name is correctly transliterated into Latin script as Yegor, whereas most of my fellow Russians would be inclined to write it as Egor, which to any English-speaking person would read similarly to Igor, as in Dr. Frankenstein’s servant, and that’s just as wrong as you could ever fare: Igor is Norse deriving from Ingvar, while Yegor is Greek deriving from Yegoriy-Grigoriy-Georgios, same as George.)

The correct transliteration here would seem to have to do with where the tonic accent falls in the name’s Hebrew pronunciation (much as I recall Hebrew, unlike, say, French, does have tonic accents, doesn’t it). If it’s ['Benita] or [Be’nita] it should be rendered “Benita”, and if it’s [Beni’ta], it should, far as my expertise goes and it doesn’t fare très loin ici, be spelled “Benitah”.

But come on, guys! This exactly what we should be doing! Why would you be wasting the precious time of your only lives, already gnawed enough at by this maladie of ours, quarreling with each other over the things you have no control over?! Making it right when someone is wrong in the Internet? Come on! The Internet is not a big truck - it’s a series of tubes! (Just Google it.) You can’t make it right on every given instance! Roger, Needhair! Just stop! Take a look at JarJar! Look how reasonable he is! How perfectly he exercises cautious optimism! While you should be ashamed of yourselves, quarelling ceaselessly over nothing. We, all of us, have been blessed with an opportunity to forget about the whole ordeal for a year. It is quite literally priceless: whether or not it would prove up to our expectation - this is the perfect moment to say: darn it, it looks more promising than anything in the history of never (and it does), the guy won’t disclose any more information for a year, there is nothing I and my faithful Google search engine could do now - and just type Tarra White into it. Black Angelica. The world is full of opportunities.

Someone promised to throw a party at Trafalgar square when this day comes - high time, if you ask me. Let’s discuss the spelling of Yoram Benitah’s first and last names, let us talk about how the discourse, that for many years resembled Tom Clancy’s techno thriller, has just resolved into a Bourne novel, with Technion inventors, and Russian smooth operators, and French scientists, and Italian forums.

Cheers. (btw, where is Desmond?)

Right on the money, Rob! Second that emotion!

Or else, he was a Norwood 6, but Pilox is incredibly miraculous.

I joke of course…

I think that Benitah and Benita would be written exactly the same way in Hebrew. Benit would be different.

Guys
I spoke today with yoram.
He read the posts here for the last few days.
He wants to post here and answer your questions.
Tomorrow they will have a meeting in which they will decide whether to go for it.


#9

Cool if they decide to talk to us that’s good if they decide they don’t want to talk yet we respect that too. They’ve got their money to make from their hard work and we’ve got our lives to salvage. I would like all the participants to take that into consideration. For most of us it’s not a joke. We’ve been stopped living our lives to our true potential.


#10

Roger_that is trying to get information. He’s trying to get information before they start selling a treatment because he is trying to decide whether or not he’s interested in this treatment or not. Did you ever hear the term “informed consumer?” Roger_that is trying to find out information about a product in advance of sales. Do you just go and buy something or do you read about it and find out if it’s right for you or not.

Dr. Nigam has released way more info than Pilox has so far. I understand that some people question the veracity of Dr. Nigam’s information but I don’t think anyone would deny that Dr. Nigam has released a lot of information. Pilox has released a little information so far.

And none of this is intended as an insult towards Pilox. I am merely stating that:

  1. It’s reasonable for anyone to want more info about Pilox

  2. Dr. Nigam has released a lot more info about his treatments than Pilox has so it’s not really fair to compare the information-release by Dr. Nigam to Pilox

  3. Nobody is saying anything negative about Pilox. Some of us are just saying we would like more information/evidence.

So why don’t you go to Nigam for an intervention? I don’t understand why you are still discussing Nigam?? No need to convince us just by a ticket and go and take roger that with you. You both act like you are his shills. I on the other hand am waiting for a more viable treatment. Nothing has been decided on Pilox. They gonna show us the information in the due time.

  • You’re the shill. You’re a shill for Pilox even though we have insufficient evidence whether it’s legit or not yet.

  • I have said repeatedly that Dr. Nigam has not yet achieved the breakthrough results that would make it worth my expense to travel to India repeatedly to get treatment. He needs more time to see if he can improve the treatment.n

  • And I didn’t bring up Dr. Nigam in this thread genius, YOU DID. I think we should keep Dr. Nigam out of the threads involving Pilox but you just can’t seem to do it.

  • Because of guys like Roger_that and myself asking questions, vraf came to the site and answered some questions of us, and now Yoram himself is considering coming to this very site to answer some questions, thanks to guys like Roger_that and I asking probing questions.

  • You need to zip it and let the guys like Roger_that, myself, and some other posters, get information/evidence. You’re interferring with our efforts to get information. Yoram and vraf both understand why we are asking these questions so please zip it.

vraf, I’m really thankful that Yoram will consider coming to the site to answer our questions. I hope he decides to do it.

You are fussing all over Yoram and vraf like you’re a fan and they’re rock stars. Please stop your embaressing apple-polishing and boot-licking. Vraf and Yoram don’t expect or want to be treated like pop stars. Keep in mind that vraf and Yoram experience hair loss and they understand how we feel about it.

Vraf and Yoram are men and we are also men. They don’t mind if we ask probing questions. They just have to decide what they can and can’t answer. Now please pipe down and stop the attacks. The attacks are more likely to prompt vraf and Yoram to stop communicating with us than anything else.

man, i can’t explain how fantastic it would be to get some news from yoram and his pilogics colleagues. if pilox turns out to be the real deal, i’m going to compose a heroic theme song for the pilox release party.

it will go like this:

pilox here and pilox there,
i think about it everywhere,

when it seems that all out there is going to fail,
pilogics comes in with their holy grail,

pilox brings you back to life,
so grab your girl and do the jive,

:slight_smile:

Man I wish that was true as well. let’s wait and see if a Yoram decides to answer our questions. That would be great!

This would be an interesting development.


#18

Guys,

Lets chill out. If we all look batsh*t crazy, they’re not going to come on the forums to speak.

If they do, let’s be respectful. Questions are fine but try not to hide accusatory implications in your questioning, etc.

Lets all calm down and hope they come on to speak further.

Roger cares and you should too. Roger is excellent at due diligence, he can’t do a thorough investigation without knowing the correct spelling.

Let Roger do his work!
