Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A relevant bit from your link downthread:

Stop the radiation!: ~ REAL INFORMATION FROM EXPERTS on meldown: Metafilter ~

The big problem isn't the boric acid -- though it is an acid, and it can increase corrosion. The big problem is the chlorides in seawater. They'll need to be cleaned out before the reactor is safe to use again, and given the age of the Fukushima #1 reactors, it probably won't be worth doing so
